Where Glass & Painting Come Together In The Most Peculiar Way!
Alberta Tartan Tea light
Provincial and Clan/Family Tartans are literally a "labour of love" of the Diva! Great effort is made to source the correct colours and set patterns to accurately represent specific tartans in glass! Each item takes hundreds of 1mm glass threads that are all cut by hand and positioned while repeating the mantra, "keep it straight". There are several kiln firings required for each piece too!
One of Canada's three prairie provinces, Alberta's tartan was designed by Alison Lamb and Ellen Neilsen, two ladies from the Edmonton Rehabilitation Society - a voluntary agency providing work for handicapped students learning to operate handlooms. Adopted by the Provincial Legislature in March 1961, the green represents the forests; the gold is for the wheat and sunshine; the blue is for the lakes and skies; the black for the oil and coal and the pink for wild rose - the Provincial emblem.
