What’s It All About? – An Artist Talk by Bob Leatherbarrow

July 26, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A common question for artists is … what’s it all about? Bob Leatherbarrow addresses this age-old question by describing his background, influences, and artwork. Join him as he reveals his transformation from corporate culture to creative passion.

Bob, from Salt Spring Island, has been working with kiln-formed glass for over 30 years and has transitioned from being an exploration geologist with a glass “hobby” to a full-time glass artist immersed in a creative community. Three common paths he has followed on his journey are: creating textures and design components using blended glass powders; exploring new ideas through regular “self imposed residencies”; and, understanding the properties of glass to achieve unique styles. A major part of Bob’s involvement with glass has been ongoing commitment to education through teaching international workshops, writing e-books and magazine articles, and recording instructional videos.
