Artist and glass blower Brad Copping works from his home on the edge of the Canadian Shield, near Apsley, Ontario. Part of an area becoming known as the ‘land between’, it is in this landscape that he has found both muse and foil.
His sculpture is included in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Speed Museum and the Fine Art Collection of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. The Corning Museum of Glass has again acknowledged his sculpture in their annual publication, New Glass Review. This marks the seventh year his work had been so honoured. He has also received much appreciated support for the development of this work from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
His functional blown glasswork can be found in the permanent collections of the Royal Ontario Museum, the Design Exchange, and the Claridge (Bronfman) Collection.
