Announcement   Welcome to my shop! Thanks for visiting.

Some good news for my US customers. A more affordable shipping service has arrived in Canada, so I've been able to reduce the shipping prices by $5. It's a bit of a savings, but what's even better is that it cuts the shipping time in half. Cheaper and faster - can't beat that.

I've also changed the way in which you'll be able to order the holders. Rather than only posting the holders that are finished and made, I will also post the pigments that I have in stock, from which I can make a new holder on request.

If the holders say "finished and ready to go" in the description, then they are already made.

If the holder says "made on request" in the description, that means I have the pigment to make it, but the holder is not physically made yet. I will guarantee the holder is made within 10 days of the order, but in most circumstances I will be able to make it sooner.

Send me a message if you have questions

Thanks

I love this toothbrush holder!! It is very fun and unique. Brad did an awesome job, it shipped quickly and was packaged perfectly so that it did not break in transit. Highly recommend.

About

One step at a time...

I've been working with hot glass since my early years of art school in 2002. Since then I have been working as hard as I can to stay in the game. This material has taken me quite far, from Calgary to Toronto, to NY state, to Belgium and The Netherlands.

I'm not going to lie, it is a hard lifestyle trying to make a career as a glass artist. It is an expensive material to stay involved with. To the younger generation of makers such as myself, it is best not to own your own studio, but work out of other's as you get the chance, slowly building a career until one day you can support your own practice. It is a slow process that requires enduring perseverance. I have done well, with the best artist residency in Canada, and a full scholarship to a very well-respected MFA program. It has given me plenty of opportunity to develop and refine new work rather than continually relying on the first design that sells. This allows me to continue working within my own vision, hopefully contributing to material culture beyond the simple addition of objects.

The toothbrush holders I mainly sell on Etsy have supplemented my practice throughout the years. They are an object I stand by, and am proud to put my name on. It is difficult to create an original, yet affordable glass object, but I hope I have succeeded with these. I produce them when I have regular access to a glass blowing studio.
