On Collecting Clay and Glass


Most of the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery’s acquisitions are received as donations either from artists directly, or from corporate and private collections. On Collecting Clay and Glass presents four private collections to show a small sample of the diversity that these mediums offer. It includes works from the visual arts, craft, design and the decorative arts. Collecting can take many forms based on one’s personal taste and interest. For that reason, private collections are often more varied and will include, apart from clay and glass objects, paintings, textiles and furniture, prints, drawings and sculptures. For this exhibition, we selected a variety of pieces from two collections, and focused on a specific object for the other two, illustrating some of the possibilities of the intellectual and aesthetic pursuits of their owners.
On Collecting Clay and Glass includes an essay by Executive Director and Chief Curator Denis Longchamps, as well as a profile on each of the collectors featured in the exhibition written by Assistant Curator Peter Flannery.
