Bruce Coney of Studio Coney was born in South Africa and grew up in farming communities there. He was always fascinated with the art and colours used by the different peoples in South Africa.

After gaining a degree in Economics and Marketing Bruce emigrated to Canada with his small family. They settled in Deep Cove, North Vancouver and Bruce went to work for newspapers in Vancouver in the Advertising field. In the nineties Bruce owned two newspapers in Vancouver and North Vancouver.

In 2001 the Coney\'s moved to Salt Spring Island with the idea of starting a craft studio. Glassware soon became the number one medium. It allowed Bruce the opportunity to explore a wide variety of colours whilst creating pieces that are useful in the home. The fact that most of the glassware used is recycled was a bonus.
