Urve Manuel, Glass Artist

Look what just swam into the new King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery...One of Urve's Giant Cods from her amazing public installation at the Deer Lake Airport, NL, Canada called "Coming and Going". It is one of the last of her limited edition works produced for that gorgeous permanent exhibit. Super big fused glass fish with iridescent glass accents...a one of a kind treasure! (Thanks Urve for letting us showcase the giant cod here at the gallery this summer!)

A Stone’s Throw Glass is the name for Urve's glass art business in picturesque Gillams on the North Shore of the Bay of Islands in Newfoundland. She offers custom work in both leaded and fused glass designs for windows, room dividers, and cabinet doors, fused glass dishes depicting local images , as well as lessons, tools, and supplies.

She has been creating leaded glass panels for over 15 years, and have recently been working with warm glass to create fused glass pieces. Her work makes up part of art collections in Iceland, Norway, Canada, and the United States. The Provincial Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador, The Rooms, also houses both her leaded and fused glass pieces.
