Faculty: Kirei Samuel
Kirei Samuel's fascination with glass started 25 years ago, purely by accident when a friend gave her some scrap glass. For many years she travelled the Ontario art and craft show circuit and then, in 2009 she opened her studio/gallery which houses her one-of-a-kind pieces in jewellery, plates, bowls and artwork. In 2019 Kirei designed 550 pendants for the Women?s Half Marathon in Wellington, ON. She also designed and built the bases for the pewter sculptures for the Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Toronto?s annual theatre, dance and opera. She is happy to continue these commissions in 2020.
