The studio is open, by appointment or chance, in the summer and fall. Call for hours or drop by on a chance and enjoy the enchantment of the surrounding gardens and displays of the studio.
Surrounded by charming perennial gardens, Wildcraft Studio is nestled in the hills of the Madawaska Highlands. Since its opening 28 years ago, the studio has hosted the fused glass work and hand-blown glass of Debora Wildsmith-Chappell and Simon Chappell. It now also displays the jewellery created by Debora, as she has turned her passion to copper forming and creates one-of-a-kind copper and fused glass jewellery.
I am fascinated by the transformation of copper under my hammer; the shapes and texture that are created speak of the earth from which the copper is born. I look to the colours and textures that surround me in the natural world – the sparkle of green on a touch of moss, the crumple of red in an autumn leaf — to inspire and infuse my work. Come see my world transformed into wearable pieces of art.
