“The rush of working with molten glass is like no other. It constantly challenges you to work hotter and faster, while trying to coax it into a form when it seems to have a mind of its own.”

Alyssa Getz was first introduced to glass at Sheridan College in 2008, and she immediately fell in love with it. Alyssa quickly picked up on glass blowing techniques and after a productive and successful second year, she went on to receive a summer residency at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, where she further developed her work. Since her graduation from Sheridan College, Alyssa has participated in multiple shows, and continues to refine and create new work. In 2011, Alyssa was awarded the Artist Fellowship from the Living Arts Centre for her exceptional portfolio and diverse technical accomplishments.
