Glass, Booth 901
Rob Raeside is a glass object maker who has been working with the medium since 2008. He has studied at Sir Sanford Fleming College and Sheridan College School of Craft where he received with the Daniel Creighton Memorial Award. Clean lines and shapely forms define Rob’s bottle shapes. As he describes it, “This series of bottles is called Summa from the Swedish word for sum. Growing up, my dad’s family would often tell stories of the year they spent in Sweden. Kosta Boda and Orrefers crystal were around the house, so before seeing the actual hot process, simple Scandinavian design was my first exposure to decorative glass.” Currently, Rob is working full-time for the Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery.
