Gigi Laberge follows a lifelong pursuit of arts and crafts, and is an accomplished warm glass artist. A peek into her studio reveals an artist always in motion, constantly exploring, and captured by the moment.
Gigi is known for her landscapes in glass picturing locations from Maine to Alaska. She has also created the “Slice-of-Life,” jewlery for a cause, and a portion of the proceeds from this line benefit programs for families fighting disease.
Combining traditional skills with new learning, Gigi’s latest work explores the combination of glass with pearls and other natural materials.
