Heather graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts with a specialization in sculpture from the University of Waterloo. She has a diploma in Textile Arts from Sheridan College and a diploma in Design Arts from Georgian College of Applied Arts. Heather is always using her intuition in combination with colour, line and form to express herself. Both her sculptural and functional glass gives voice to her visual ideas. Painting with vitreous enamels, sandblasting, slumping and fusing are some of the techniques Wood utilizes in her response to the transparency and fluidity of glass. Heather operates her warm glass studio in Elora, Ontario.
