Natalie Borghese is a Canadian glass artist. Formerly a practicing architect, she began working with glass in 2015. This collection of flame-worked beads is inspired by the flowering apple trees in her garden and explores ideas of lightness and liminality. Handmade using soft glass and 24K gold leaf, she approaches each bead like a water colour painting, layering washes of transparent colour, delicate floral murrine, and fragments of gold to create little worlds of shimmering light.
