Larissa Blokhuis

blown glass, lampworked glass
Larissa was born on the great plains of Canada. She was six when she knew she was an artist. At seven, she found herself on a dock in Vancouver, watching a man paint dolphins. This painting was given to her, and now hangs in her home. At age fourteen, she took a glassblowing course. Four years later, at age eighteen, she began her BFA in glass. In 2008, at the age of twenty-two, she completed her BFA in glass at the Alberta College of Art and Design. The summer after graduating, she traveled to Murano, a world-renown glassblowing location in Italy, where she watched a man make a dolphin out of glass in thirty seconds.
