Project Description

Toni Fairhead

Having worked with a variety of mediums, it is the alchemy, and unpredictability of working in glass that grabbed Toni and won’t let her go. She employs an unexpected combination of copper textiles and the ancient pate de verre (glass paste) process; the glass crystals reveal and reflect the copper elements creating a network that reunites and reconnects the whole. Her current work, the Rime Series, is asymmetrical, highly textured and displays a cold purity.

Toni received the gold award at the 3rd International Glass Creation & Design Competition and Exhibition, 2018 in China.
