Lia Howe owns and operates Lia's Glass Dreams, a dual purpose business which offers both a full line of stained glass supplies and a glass art studio featuring her own creative works.
A graduate of the Fleming College glass blowing program, Lia has turned her love of glass into a home business spanning over twenty years. Her inspiration comes from her childhood when she would admire church windows on travels with her father and love how different lighting would interact with the colours.
For those wishing to learn about glass art, opportunities arise during the summer at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts, where Lia is an instructor.
Lia's Glass Dreams specializes in various forms of glass art, each producing their own unique traits:
Glass blowing: paperweights, bowls, vases and sculptures
Torch work: glass beads and glass sculptures
Kiln-forming and kiln-fusing: bowls and decorative sun catchers
