Bonny Houston, born and raised in Lacadena, Saskatchewan, has been making hot glass since the mid 1980s. She finds inspiration in the colours and forms around her from the yummy shades of Asiatic lilies in her garden, to the flash of koi in the backyard pond, or the subtle blondes of native grasses. Playing with fire is a passion for Bonny who received her glass art education at The Alberta College of Art and Design, The Tokyo Glass Art Institute, Red Deer College and Sheridan College.
Bonny has operated her own glass studio in Calgary, Houston Hot Shop, since 1994. A committed member of the glass art community, Bonny exhibits locally, nationally and internationally, maintains an active studio practice, teaches, and still finds off-leash time for her favourite black dog.
