    Bob Leatherbarrow established Leatherbarrow Glass Studio in 1988 and has created original kilnformed glass ever since. Known for his innovative styles, techniques, and designs, Bob has taken an experimental approach to developing unique textures and colour palettes using glass powders. His glass bowls and sculptures explore the subtle hues and delicate beauty of naturally occurring textures and encourage the viewer to ponder their origin. In 2008 Bob moved to Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, where he continues to make glass art and write e-books on his signature techniques. Bob has also been a popular instructor on both the national and international kilnformed glass scenes and has recently shared many of his techniques through the comprehensive AAE video class program.

We Appreciate You

Thank You and a Hug From AAE Glass & the Veit Family

Dear AAE Glass Family,

We would like to extend a huge thank you and hug to all of you! These last several months have been hard for everyone. There is no sugarcoating that. But we are going to get through this by helping and supporting each other like we always have. The art glass industry is a resilient and resourceful one. Filled with strong, passionate, hardworking people who will stop at nothing to grow their glass art skills.

First of all, Tanya insists on a couple deep breaths and a virtual hug. Just take a moment for yourself. Close your eyes or stare out the window, just get lost for a minute and clear your head. We'll wait...

We miss you! We have received so many notes from you that are extremely heartfelt and uplifting, especially lately, that we wanted to let you know that we hear you, we feel the love and we send it right back to you!

So many of you have been with us since the beginning. We have grown together. We have succeeded and failed together. We have laughed and cried together. We are proud to have such a tight knit group of artists who are so willing to not only support us, but support each other. We all benefit in the end from such relationships.

We have also had the pleasure of virtually meeting so many new artists these past few months. Thank you for coming aboard and please don't be shy about sharing and participating. Ask questions and share your failures. We all learn from both.

Just, thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you for your support. Thank you for your understanding. Thank you for your uplifting messages. Thank you for continuing to support the fused glass industry. We have some exciting things coming right around the corner. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Sincerely,

The Veit Family
