Artist/Craftsmen Neil Relkie first open his shop in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1984. After seeing the possibilities of art glass, the vibrant colours and sparkling textured stained glasses, the detailed imagery of sandblasted and carved glass, he applied these materials and techniques to his original designs. After more than 30 years, Neil still feels the same excitement to his work that drew him to this field.
Neil has recently moved from the west (wet) coast of British Columbia, to the arid climate of Anarchist Mountain near Ososyoos B.C.. Living amongst a whole new landscape filled with wildlife such as cougars, bears, coyotes, mule deer, hawks and falcons, present Neil with new inspiration for his art.
In a world of daily technical advances, instantaneous gratification and mass production, Neil believes in slowing down and creating quality, handcrafted art that will become a long lasting cherished art piece, which in many years in the future will end up on Antiques Roadshow.
