Glass in the Garden Exhibit

Take a walk in the park this December to enjoy the vibrant colours of David Blankenstyn’s, owner of Okotoks Hot Glass,  dedication to launch our first Public Features Art Program.

Each piece of glass in the garden was handmade by David using molten glass and a furnace style technique that dates back thousands of years. Working with molten glass has been described as a careful dance with fire and air, blowing and stretching the glass at precise moments to create the infinite possibilities of shapes. Sprouting from the gardens and nestled in the waters the glass appears at home in the Devonian gardens. David hopes his art will inspire and stir the imaginations of all who view it.
