Handmade in Vancouver by artist Hillary Webb. The beads are made from off-cuts of clay from the artist ceramics practice, where she experiments with different clay types, glaze colours and finishes.
Hillary Webb is a Vancouver-based artist who practices primarily in textile mediums and ceramics, combining techniques such as hand embroidery, natural dyeing, and drawing. Hillary’s work is inspired by architecture, geometry, the natural world, and a sense of place. She has exhibited her work across North America in solo and group shows, as well as art and craft fairs. She has taught embroidery workshops since 2006, and regularly collaborates with other artists on creative projects. After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2004 she became a librarian at Emily Carr University of Art and Design out of the desire to give people the tools to learn new techniques, to explore, and to be inspired by history, ideas, and images.
