Featured Artist: Jeff Goodman Studio
Visit the Craft Ontario Shop to see a featured work from the Jeff Goodman Studio, September 6th - 20th!
The Jeff Goodman Studio was established in 1989. Goodman built a studio environment where designers, artists and architects can collaborate and fully explore the infinite possibilities of glass.
Today, Executive Director and designer Sylvia Lee works with a team to create colourful, fluid and organic pieces. Glass-workers Blaise Campbell, Nick Chase, Evan Butters, and Aidan Crichton use a combination of casting, blowing, cold-working and carving techniques to realize the studio’s creative visions.
The Abacus Screen was developed by the studio as a product for architects and designers to merge the beauty of glass into the architecture of a space. The Abacus is a modular, customizable screen that brings the colour and materiality of blown glass to life in any residential or commercial space.

These gracefully draped glass folders play on the concept of new and old technology – the manila folder versus a computer folder icon. Designer Sylvia Lee reflects on the modern generation who will likely not experience such reliance on physical, paper objects as the world moves more towards a digital existence.

Individually hand-blown bowls in a variety of colours and forms emulate the topographical lines on a map. The combination of shiny interior and frosted exterior surfaces emphasize the curvilinear lines of the forms and create a gentle contrast in colour. They can be displayed free-standing or wall-mounted.
