Rebecca Maher Glass
Second Generation ~ Glass Artisan
Rebecca Maher grew up in Northern British Columbia with her family. Her dad, her mentor, had dabbled in stained glass in his early 20’s but had put the hobby aside when raising a family. He has recently taken it up again in his retirement and works on large custom windows. When visiting for Christmas a few years ago, Rebecca’s dad taught her how to work with glass. Since this initial lesson, Rebecca has taken additional lessons at local stained glass studios and most recently, she has taken her art public and has never looked back.
Rebecca creates a line of home decor and art as well as custom windows and installations, all out of her studio in Airdrie, Alberta. Her work is a reflection of her life in northern BC as well as influences from time spent in Vancouver and Calgary. She believes in kindness, love and trust – values that are reflected in all of her work.
“Being able to use my hands and creativity to not only draw and design patterns, but see them come to life with glass has given me the ability to see another side of myself and the community that supports me.”
