Description provided by Establishment
Circa is a one of a kind shop that imports only MID CENTURY MODERN Art Glass from around the world. All items are hand blown works of art from the 1940’s to 1960’s. The focus is on European art glass. ITALIAN, SCANDANAVIAN, FRENCH, BELGIAN and CZECH.
The MID CENTURY MODERN style is defined by its modern forms, biomorphic shapes, exceptional quality in materials and workmanship and intense vivid colors. Most items are imported from Europe, and culled from estate sales, auction and meticulous searching through major European centres.
Owner and curator Brian Imeson has spent several years collecting, and searches continually to bring world class VINTAGE ART GLASS to Calgary and Canada.
Circa also sources original ART DECO clocks, as well as bronze and spelter sculptures from the ART DECO period.
A visit to the shop is an education in the MID CENTURY MODERN styling of VINTAGE ART GLASS. A visual spectacle of color, form and modernism.
