Toronto-based glass artist Brad Turner creates sculptural and functional glass objects with a focus on diversity, craftsmanship, and conceptual originality. Using the unique material characteristics of glass, he aims to create well-made, thoughtful objects that add relevant content to the world's creative landscape. His functional work is linked through the personal values he employs, including clean aesthetics, simple solutions, and a responsible use of material. Turner’s glasswork seeks to elevate the medium’s properties: the rare combination of strength and fragility, the unmistakable relationship with light and optics, and its roots in vessel-making and functional design.
