Presenting Robert Michael August 13 to September 29th
Robert Michael TUTTY is an artisan who resides in Nanoose Bay. He retired here from Calgary seven years ago. He spent the first two years checking out the lay of the land. Inspired by the surrounding beauty, Robert decided to feed his creative spirit. He had worked with stained glass many years before and made several lamps and small windows but he didn’t want to repeat the same art form. He decided to try glass fusing and after taking a class he was immediately hooked. Over the past 5 years he has moved from bowls and plates to making jewelry, pendants and earrings, and back to bowls and plates. He now works primarily with Dichroic Glass and has developed his own unique methods of working with the glass. The bowls and plates that he forms are like no other.
