Gundi is a glass artist who was born in Germany and lived for twenty years in Chile before moving to Canada in 1973. During the early 1980s she worked as a fashion designer in suede and leather – an occupation that helped her develop the keen sense of shape and proportion that is so evident in her sculptural glass creations. She now lives and works in in the rolling Northumberland hills, one and a half hours dive east of Toronto, Ontario. Gundi’s studio is nestled into a hilltop overlooking the surrounding fields, forest, marsh and creek. It therefore comes as no surprise that the nature scene outside her studio window provides much of the inspiration for her brilliant and flowing sculptures. In particular the intense cold, bright light and ice formations of the Canadian Winters.
