Christy HALDANE – Stone & Glass Sculptor
After majoring in glass at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Christy Haldane studied for a semester at the Canberra School of Art in Australia. It was in Australia that Haldane began to incorporate window glass as a constant in her sculptures.
Using a kiln I melt and fuse window glass creating simple forms, highlighting the qualities of the glass. Working in series, I combine the glass with other common building materials, such as stone, concrete and steel enhancing the fragility and strength of the glass components. The sculptures consider humanity’s effect on the environment and the precarious balance in which the natural and artificial environments exist.
