Stanley Park Dragonfly series
A number of years ago there was a giant wind storm that ravaged Vancouver's crown jewel Stanley Park....... Hundreds of trees were toppled over and uprooted.... The roots of these tree's spread deep down into the earth, some of these roots were hundreds of miles deep..... Deep within the lower levels just before the magma center of the earth lyes a mystical place where only the most magical of creatures live..... this is where these Stanley Park Dragonfly's used to be trapped.....covered up by rock and earth tucked away for centuries...... That now famous wind storm uprooted the tree's with such force that tunnels were created releasing these creatures from captivity. If you find yourself on a crisp calm evening walking the seawall or watching the sun set over the tree's you might be lucky enough to spot one of Vancouver's most mystical of creatures the Stanley Park Dragonfly.

Artist Statement and Bio

Braden Hammond began his journey as a lampworking glass artist in 2003 at Santa Cruz Art and Glass Studio in California. From that moment, he was hooked on the beauty of glass art and its endless possibilities. He is constantly exploring the techniques and challenges of glass and is an active participant in the growing glass movement.

Hammonds current art focuses on modern expressions using various lampworking techniques. Whether its the clean lines of the Italian retichello pattern or the crisp pedals of the imploded flower, his dedication to perfection is a distinct part of his style.

I strive to push my limits and the limits of glass every day. I am constantly learning, growing and creating new concepts that take my art to the next level. I focus and explore new methods and techniques to follow through with each of my visions.

Hammonds glass art is currently in galleries and boutiques across Canada and internationally. He has been featured in The Vancouver Province Newspaper, the Edmonton Journal and has been nominated as an Emerging Artist in The Flow Magazine, a Glass Journal for the Flameworking Community.

He has taught several classes at Andrighetti Glassworks, Western Canadas largest lampworking facility. Braden Hammond currently resides in Vancouver, BC, Canada with his girlfriend and business partner Kristina Holtz.
