Who is RedBeard?


Redbeard keeps kin and kiln under Okanagan Valley’s surreal dreamscape, inspiration fecundated in flower, family, fluid media, and fire. Autonomous operation has enabled Redbeard’s distinctive technique to emerge, to become internationally-beloved and sought-after, blossoming from recognition to renown. (Limited instruction space may be made available to select students).

Celebrating 18 years at the torch, Redbeard has designed a series of spectacular new Canadiana functional art, and decorative stemware, while enlarging his gallery portfolio of feature display pieces (i.e. higher headies). His newly-renovated mountainside shop is turning out masterpieces designed to blow your mind (or deliver your medicine with uncommon panache). And they’re gone before they are cool – so get’em while they’re hot!

Redbeard has created and hosted The Great Canadian Glass Gathering, now in its 9th year! This camping and lamping event lights up over 40 torch stations, with crucibles to dip, live bands, and DJs to jive to, delicious food, aroma, water, and friends everywhere. This year a Canna Cup will add another dimension of fun to the mix.
