Philip Doucette is a native Nova Scotian, born in Halifax in 1961. He attended Dalhousie University, studying science, before pursuing a course of individual training in stained glass with the Atlantic glass artist community. Since 1987, his studio has provided expert design, fabrication and restoration services to a variety of individual and institutional clients. Philip is a Master Artisan of the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council, and believes strongly in promoting the possibilities of glass design through teaching and mentoring in the community. Since 2000, his explorations in fused glass have added new direction and dimension to his work, allowing him a unique palate with which to reiterate his scientific education in a delicate synthesis of colour, form and light. Philip practices his vitreous alchemy in a studio located in a historic warehouse building in downtown Halifax.
