FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association



FUSION was pleased to host our inaugural emerging artist exhibition: BREAKTHROUGH in June, 2018. We were astounded by the response from our call for entry. Forty eight artists from across Canada submitted 126 pieces for consideration. All are either currently students, or within five years if their training.

The result was an exhibition from 28 artists that was vibrant, varied and engaging.The exhibition was a wonderful survey of sculptural and functional work from the next generation of glass and clayartists. Using a multitude of materials and construction methods within their respective disciplines, these artists are breaking new ground.

Congratulations to all the participating Breakthrough artists and these award winners: 

 Best in Show: Daumante Stirbyte


Best in Clay: Joon Hee Kim


 Best in Glass: Jennifer Glasser

 Craft Ontario Affiliate Award: Zara Gardner
