Nadia Tasci is a recognized Toronto, Canada glass flame artist. Her glass work includes fine jewellery, beads and miniature paperweights. She has been working in the mediums of glass for over 10 years.
Nadia studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design and Sheridan College, as a Visual Arts and Craft / Design student. She was awarded a travel scholarship from the Ontario Crafts Council to complete a jewellery program at Sterling Quest Design School in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She has also studied with a variety of internationally recognized glass flame artists.
Nadia's fine glass jewellery is available in many Galleries, Boutiques and National shows across Canada. She currently works out of her studio and teaching facility in the Artscape Wychwood Barns in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
I am inspired by the interactions between colour, form and patterns in my glass flamework, that result in boldly colourful statement pieces. I have travelled extensively and draw inspiration from the antiquity in art, surviving from the past. From Venetian, Islamic, Latin American and East Indian art motifs, I relate to the geometry of pattern and enjoy bringing these relic designs into contemporary glass jewellery and other flameworked glass objects.
Precision and craftsmanship are very important to me when creating. My own work explores the fine line between excessive planning and experimenting. I am always looking at developing my practise both technically and conceptually. I hope to always push my creativity with glass flamework, a medium that has no limits.
