Bella Grey Jewellery Design
Bella Grey jewellery grew from the courage, faith and creative focus that were essential in facing and overcoming uncertain and challenging personal circumstances. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including beach stones and vintage buttons, each wonderful and whimsical accessory represents the strength and fulfillment that can come from accepting life’s difficulties and redirecting perspective toward growth, possibilities, and happiness.
Infinite Glassworks offers unique handblown and fused glass products for interior and exterior spaces. Emphasizing shape, form and colour, Infinite Glassworks produces fresh design in functional and sculptural vessels. Using molten glass, Kate and Matthew Civiero work together to form each piece by hand. After gathering hot glass on a hollow pipe, colour is added and the vessel is inflated and manipulated with specially designed hand tools. Upon completion, each piece of glass is cooled slowly to room temperature, then ground flat, polished and signed.

Canada | 2010 | colour | 65 min | english
The Ojibway artist Carl Beam (1943-2005) strongly influenced an entire generation of aboriginal artists and played a decisive role in the development of First Nations art in Canada.

His story is told first by his wife, Ann, and daughter Anong. Then, in 11 themed segments, the film explores the highlights in his career and analyzes how his early experiences, from his childhood on Manitoulin Island to his turbulent years in residential school, impacted not only his life but his work as an artist.

Suzuki’s artistic focus for the past thirty-five years has been on colour and design as it relates to textiles. She works with the ancient technique of BATIK , using Silk, wax and dyes to create unique colour combinations and intricate patterns.

Silk responds so well to the BATIK process, taking the dyes in a very intense way, colour over colour mixing and blending until the BATIK is completed.
The design and creation of “One of a Kind” garments is the next stage of her work. Each BATIK seems to lead her towards a garment design, whether it is jackets, coats, suits, gossamer evening tops, funky hats and Winter Silk scarves. Her pieces attract people for many different reasons, which she enjoys.

Sadikan has been fascinated with wood working from a young age having watched his father restore old wooden chests and ornate them with brass pins. Interestingly, and decades later, he started making pens made from spent rifle brass cartridges. Most of the cartridges were fired from old World War I and World War II rifles and lent some significance as gifts. In short time, the natural progression to making pens entirely out of wood came to light. There is no shortage of wood in the Grey Bruce area, so all of his pens at the gallery are made from local wood.
