Heather Wood graduated with Distinction with an Honours Bachelor of Arts with a Studio Specialization in Sculpture. Her studio is now located in Elora, Ontario, where she works using a kiln to alter, fuse and slump glass. Using glass enamels she also paints and etches these kiln-fired flat glasses to create two and three-dimensional works.
Heathers teaching experience includes painting with kiln fired vitreous glass enamels as well as glass fusing and slumping, with glass powders and frits. She has taught these glass practices at the Burlington Art Centre, the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo, and at the Haliburton School of the Arts.
She also teaches drawing and art related projects in local schools, through extension classes and with community groups such as Stonehenge in Guelph and L'Arche in Stratford. Heather has received Ontario Artists in the Schools Grants to assist her in the public and elementary schools as well as teaching through the Royal Conservatory of Art through Learning Through the Arts programs.
Commissions include the Ontario Arts Council, The Provincial Government of Ontario, Imax Corporation, the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University as well as many other private and corporate commissions.
Heather is active as a volunteer on the Elora Sculpture Committee and with the Elora Fergus Studio Tour.
