Artisan, Courtney Smith, graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2014. She has since returned to her Cape Breton home and manages a local art & craft gallery in the Village of Baddeck called Victoria County Creates. Courtney’s original paintings are created using highly pigmented, crushed glass powder called enamel, mixed with water and layered on top of sheet glass. When the painting is dry it goes through fusing process in a glass kiln at a temperature of 1485°F. Commissions welcome!
