Violet Finvers

Glass Artist

Violet was born and raised in Edmonton and moved to Vancouver to pursue a career as a graphic designer. In 1988, she graduated with honours from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and has been a professional graphic designer for more than 30 years. A need for a new creative outlet and a change in direction led her to kiln-formed glass. Violet began working with glass in 2008 under the mentorship of Brock Craig at Craig Studios. Violet has participated in numerous exhibitions in Canada and the US and was a finalist in E-merge 2010, an international, juried, kiln-formed glass competition. She was the 2012 recipient of the BC Glass Arts Association Pilchuck Scholarship and a finalist in the Made in Vancouver 2019—Vancouver Magazine awards and Western Living Magazine Designers of the Year — Makers category. Her work can be found in galleries/shops across Canada. She works out of her home studio in Burnaby, BC.

Violet’s kiln-formed glass is clean and contemporary. Her attention to detail and finish and her love of colour, pattern and texture reveal themselves in distinctly unique, functional and sculptural pieces, equally elegant for the office, home and body. Her work is highly influenced by her graphic design sensibility. Patterns, textures and colour relationships, as well as her attention to detail, play a key role.
