LUSIA MURPHY

@lusia.glass

Lusia Murphy is an artist based in Vancouver, BC. She studied the craft of glass-blowing at the Alberta University of the Arts where she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Art. She was raised in the remote city of Whitehorse, Yukon and as her experiences take her through the varying climates and terrains of Western Canada, she draws inspiration from themes of isolation, extremes, and inner landscapes.

Borrowing from Scandinavian and Venetian techniques, Murphy's glass investigates the fluidity of material to create contemporary amorphous objects that refract and play with the light in their environment.
