Rosemary (Hynes) Driscoll, fused glass

Vernissage July 22, 6-8 pm

An exploration, in fibre and glass, of interwoven energies harnessed to guide the viewer into a new dimension.

Catherine Timm
textile art

Catherine Timm is a professionally practicing visual artist who lives on the Ottawa River north of Ottawa, Ontario. Catherine studied at Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She works primarily with textiles and stitch, although she is also known for her work with natural materials wire, and paint. Her practice is inspired by sharing and learning about new processes with other artists as well as the influence of her natural surroundings. Catherine has used her knowledge as a quilt maker to explore nature through layering, gluing, stitching and manipulating wire to build two and three dimensional work. As a member of International Arts Organizations, Catherine’s art has won awards, been displayed in juried shows around the world, and hangs in private collections.

Rosemary Hynes Driscoll
Fused glass, watercolour, pastels, printmaking

The simple things are what got me to love the idea of saturated colour and light. Above all else I try to listen to the right noise, celebrate anything off the wall and give back all of my creative energy while still having fun.

My addictions to all things creative have driven me to the light. The transparencies of watercolor, the glow of pastel and the brilliance of glass all feed my need to participate in their energies. Mostly self-taught, I am drawn to discover how to move through the dark and light with color.

I have a studio overlooking the Ottawa River, which brings me great joy and inspiration. The ever changing sky, the oak tree ridge twisting through the Canadian Shield, the sound of rushing rapid waters, the lonely jack pine at the river’s edge and the regal wild life, all stimulate my senses.

Fused Glass lets me work with material that lasts forever. Even the broken and unsuccessful pieces are all recycled in the next creation. Some of my work has gone through my hands and my kilns many times. The glass is melted to 1445 degrees Fahrenheit, cooled slowly, slumped to 1225 degrees Fahrenheit, hand polished, carved and possibly kiln polished again to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit. This process I repeat for every tiny piece, which is often combined with other pieces that had their own journey.

I love every minute of my work with glass. I also love to share the product and the end result. I would love to bring the buyer into my studio with a virtual experience. This is easily done with custom work.

I hope my work evokes my passion for light and colour.
