Our Featured Artists


Hanscomb Glass Studio is proud to feature original artwork and jewelry from local and internationally renowned artists in our Elora shop! 

We are please to introduce:

Catherine Labonté - Cat Designer Verrier

Glass artist Catherine Labonté makes all of her pieces by hand in her hot glass workshop in Bedford. Cat offers a range of decorative blown glass animals known for making people smile! For Catherine, nothing is more important than bringing a little happiness to the families who adopt her creations in their daily lives. Her extensive experience allows her to create and manufacture works tinged with her colorful universe.

The Three Crows - Les Trois Corbeaux

The Three Crows used to participate in the One of a Kind craft show in Toronto where we originally met. Jeff and Christina run their glass studio out of Quebec City where they create blown glass ornaments such as witch balls, flying pigs, mice and colourful hummingbirds.

Their mission is to bring beauty and whimsy to everyday life, and this is definitely reflected in their fun and bright glasswork. If you are ever in Quebec City you can go by their artisanal glass studio located in the heart of the Old City to see the energetic pair in action.

Emma Gerard

With a passion for creating colorful and unique handmade pieces, Emma has built a reputation for her creativity and attention to detail. Whether it is a necklace, or a pair of earrings, each of Emma's fun creations is a work of art that is sure to impress. 

Emma takes great pride in her work and is always striving to push the boundaries of what is possible with glass and jewellery making. If you are in Elora and looking for a truly special piece of jewellery, you cannot go wrong with one of her creations!

Beatrice Shomber - Beusha

Beatrice Shomber is originally from Germany and moved to Argentina where she has lived for 7+ years. We met Beatrice on a family trip in 2019 in a small artists collective in San Telmo, Buenos Aires. We found her studio in a former neighbourhood hotel which was transformed in 1979 into an art gallery and atelier for painters and sculptors. Its façade was modified, but its interior still preserves the original Italian features.

Her original inspiration came from a television series she saw about the work of artists on the Island of Murano. She did a course to learn how to flamework and started working directly with glass.


All of her pieces are made one by one on the flame and when they are finished they go into a kiln for annealing. Beatrice makes the beads for most of the fruit jewellery we carry in the shop. 

Julie Beverstein

Julie is one of our flame working artists. She creates stunning beads and jewellery pieces that are truly tiny works of art. Layering and manipulating colours, textures and transparencies, she is able to make whimsical beaded jewellery for any occasion. She makes these both at her own home studio and here at Hanscomb Glass between her shifts as a pilot with a Canadian air company.
