Craft & Design exhibitions at Harbourfront Centre celebrate the elemental qualities of materials, aesthetic curiosity and conceptual discovery.

Amber Zuber

Curated by Melanie Egan

Expressing meaning through materials and making is a hallmark of contemporary craft practice. Amber Zuber’s work is the embodiment of this legacy. In the midst of making she is viscerally and intellectually connected to her material; endeavouring to represent meaning that cannot be communicated with mere words.

Reid Ferguson, Ji Huang, Jared Last and Nadira Narine

Curated by Melanie Egan

The vessel form has endured for centuries; be it as a purely functional object or conceptual repository. These four artists create work at the intersection of craft and design using both the vessel form and perceptions of volume – a classic combination in contemporary glass – to express ideas.

ARRAY: Rob Raeside

Curated by Melanie Egan

Rob Raeside’s work exemplifies making the complex appear simple. His earliest exposure to glass was observing the refined shapes of mid-century Scandinavian designs from Kosta Boda and Orrefers.
