Welcome to Silica and Soda!
Silica and Soda
Silica and Soda is a Calgary-based glass art collective founded in July 2020. Our goal is to provide local, hand made art glass that educates and mystifies our patrons with the beauty of glass. We pride ourselves in striving to be an eco-conscious studio, offering a collection of new and recycled glass works. We believe community to be of the upmost importance and we are always happy to welcome people into our studio and share our process and passions with our medium!
As a small studio just outside the downtown core, we have created an atmosphere of tranquil, cottage-style living in the midst of a city that never sleeps. We want our work to be just as much of an escape as the space we have created – pulling from the natural world for our inspirations. Passed down through generations of creative individuals, our studio has a rich history of artistic community and collaboration. We intend to keep this tradition going and continue to carry the (pun intended) flame forward.
We would like to acknowledge the support we have received from the Calgary glass community, including Bee Kingdom Inc., Alberta University of the Arts, Jamie Grey, Rhonda Neufeld of Eternal Flame, Todd V, Fascapple Glass, as well as many others.
In the spirit of respect, reciprocity, and truth, we would also like to honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and create on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory. This sacred gathering place provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation.
Thanks for visiting us online, have a beautiful stay!
