Teresa de Koninck
My name is Teresa de Koninck. I am a fused glass artist from Vancouver Island. I have been working with glass since 2009 and my love for nature and long walks on the beach has allowed me to create funky driftwood fused glass fish. These are produced as unique fish chimes or they are mounted to become desk ornaments. Each fish has a distinct personality by combining the texture of the wood with the contrasting glass pieces which make up part of the body. To complete this West Coast experience ,I combine old fishing lures with the glass chimes to produce an entirely different look and sound and give each fish a name. When I'm not working or teaching in my studio, you can find me walking the beach looking for the next catch of the day.
