Joanne McKechnie

Photo of Joanne McKechnieThe beauty of light streaming through the texture and colour of glass has always attracted me and inspires my work creating glass art. La Luz means ‘the light’ in Spanish and that mantra captures my relationship with my glass art.Glass is a wonderful medium that lets me make pieces that, although somewhat fragile due to the characteristics of glass, reflect, refract and focus light through millions of colours that will engage the viewer in wrapt delight forever.With natural light just passing through glass, the vibrancy of the colours is enough to change moods and give cheer to the viewer.
I have been creating stained glass windows for over thirty years.More recently, I have been drawn to the beauty and possibilities of working with warm (fused) glass.Many of the newer worksshown on the gallery site can be used as functional, architectural or art pieces. I do bowls, plates, panels and tablets that can haveall sorts of uses.
My studio is based in beautiful downtown Kelowna, British Columbia, and I am only a short walk from Hambleton Galleries where I show my work.This closeness lets me communicate directly with some of the clients who purchase my work and sometimesgives me the opportunity to do unique commission pieces for those who wish.
La Luz Glassworks Studio creates custom designed stained glass windows, warm (or fused) glass art that can be used as functional or glass art pieces and glass jewellery.
Forthose who want beautiful pieces of glass to display as art or to use as serving pieces; for architects, designers and builders who want custom designed glass installations or pieces of glass art; or for corporations who want to purchase art for their workplace or as corporate gifts, there is something for every purpose.
