Kayla Della-Nebbia is a multi­dis­ci­pli­nary artist from the tradi­tional terri­to­ries of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Missis­saugas, known as Hamil­ton, Ontario. She works primar­ily in wood and glass, creat­ing func­tional pieces of furni­ture and blown and cast glass objects. 

Kayla uses colour and pattern to create unique pieces. In wood, she often uses pres­sure dyed veneers and marquetry tech­niques to create colour­ful pieces of furni­ture. She is inspired by tradi­tional tech­niques such as quilt­ing, and Métis beadwork. 

She is inspired by the fluid nature of glass and the unex­pected results that occur when working with hot glass. She often reuses pieces of colour from past projects to create unex­pected results. Each piece of glass­ware is unique. Her glass­ware is intended to use colour to bring a sense of joy and play­ful­ness into the home. 

Kayla is currently in her 3rd year at Sheri­dan College, in the Craft and Design program. She is also a TA in the Furni­ture Studio, as well as a summer employee of the studio, working side by side with the studio tech­ni­cian to main­tain machin­ery and create and improve systems in the shop.
