“Samantha lives, works and plays in the lovely countryside of South Glengarry in Eastern Ontario. Calder has been surrounded with, and has shown a wonderful talent and appreciation for the Fine Arts and Performing Arts since childhood. Having worked full-time in Customer Service for several years, Samantha was introduced to the Art of stained glass. This introduction evolved into a passion for working with glass which prompted Samantha to open her own stained glass and glass fusing studio “Living Sun Glass” in 2006. Wanting to expand her glass art skills, Calder opted to study traditional glass painting and Vitrifusaille techniques in 2012 with a world renowned glass artist.
With an ever increasing assortment of glass techniques being added to her repertoire, Samantha continues to broaden her scope as a glass artist. Much of her work is inspired by nature, nostalgia and shadows as well as the colours and transparency of the medium itself.
Samantha’s work has received recognition throughout Ontario, Quebec and internationally on-line. The public is invited by appointment year round to view personal work at her home studio in Green Valley, Ontario. Samantha also shares her gift and love of glass through workshops available at her studio.”
