Urban Carrot Hot Glass

Urban Carrot Hot Glass
  • Category: Glasswork

Todd was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta.  Summers were spent on the family farm outside of the city.

Originally interested in pursuing a career in furniture design, Todd attended the School of Crafts and Design at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. It was there that he was introduced to working with hot glass. After graduating from the school’s glass program in 1997, he returned to Alberta and worked in several studios throughout the province as well as in British Columbia and Colorado.

Todd built his own studio in 2011, where he currently enjoys creating unique and functional glassware. His work is frequently inspired by the compatibility of glass with different media and materials. In his latest series, Todd has been fusing old photographic images onto glassware that celebrate childhood memories, family celebrations, and the Alberta prairies.
