FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association

Fireworks 2017 Exhibition



Sandra Alfoldy and Ione Thorkelsson – Jurors

Welcome to Fireworks 2017, a celebratory exhibition of hand crafted works in clay and glass, organized by FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association. The talent and creative spirit of FUSION members is highlighted in this exhibition, which showcases diverse and unique works of art.

The tradition of Fireworks Exhibitions started almost 40 years ago. Held biennially, the call for entry invites participation from across Ontario and beyond. Fireworks has come to symbolize the best in contemporary clay and glass FUSION’s members have to offer and is displayed in galleries throughout Ontario for two years.

Fireworks 2017 stands as a testament to the vitality, originality and inventiveness of today's practicing crafts community - a tribute to those makers who have chosen clay and glass as their mode of self expression, and in some instances, their livelihood.

Above and beyond the artists represented here, over the years many volunteers have put in long hours to ensure Fireworks exhibitions move from concept to reality.  A few key individuals and organizations who have contributed to the success of this traveling exhibition deserve special acknowledgement:

  •        Gilda Goodman, for provision of the Henry Goodman Best in Show Award
  •         Tucker’s Pottery Supplies – Award
  •         Pottery Supply House – Award and transport of show
  •         Potter’s Guild of Hamilton and Region – Award

  •         Craft Ontario – Award
  •         Longo's - Opening reception and awards ceremony
  •         Sandra Alfoldy and Ione Thorkelsson – Jurors
