Collection: Tanya Garvis

Artist Tanya Garvis has learned that glass and copper fused together create extraordinary visual effects. No two designs are ever the same. Every single piece of copper in her work is fired only by her, in a vitreous enameling process that goes back to ancient Greece. Pieces range from single tiles and small works to large installations. Commissions are welcome.

About the Artist

Tanya Garvis has always appreciated fine art, but wasn’t always an artist. Born in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, she attended the University of Minnesota and earned degrees in marketing communications and psychology. After years in marketing and food service, she was just not feeling joy in her work.

One day, she happened upon vitrified-enamel art at a gallery and was smitten. She left her name and number, hoping to apprentice with the artist. Almost two years later, she got the call. Studying under Dennis Berry, she grew convinced that she had found her calling. Her work quickly earned positive responses from galleries and artists alike. She quit everything and jumped in.

From her studio in Deephaven, Minnesota, Tanya creates art because it is her (best) way of bringing joy to others. It is also a vehicle to express herself in the brightest times and those of darkness, both personally and in the world. A bit of a rebel in the enameling world, she has broken a few rules of the “true process” to develop her own style. Her creations are very intuitive. No two pieces are ever the same, making possibilities infinite. She makes each piece with hand-cut copper and fires it individually with glass. One copper square can be all that is needed; other times, a collage of hundreds makes it complete.
