Faculty Profile for John Raynard
Haliburton School of The ArtsJohn Raynard is a graduate and former teaching assistant of Sheridan's glass program, and past apprentice at Kleewyck Glass in Thunder Bay, ON. Between consecutive apprenticeships at Kleewyk, John travelled extensively in China, Tibet and Nepal, where he discovered a love for the barren and remote places of the world. By drawing on a repertoire of hot and warm glass techniques learned over 10 years, he creates blown forms and cast sculptures that reflect the exotic colours and textures of his journeys abroad. He returns to the Haliburton School of The Arts as a teacher's assistant and instructor in the Glass Studio.
