Karli Sears works with glass to create sensual, botanically-inspired sculpture and elegantly playful jewellery. The organic qualities of hot glass – it’s fluidity and luminosity – drew her to the glass studio at Sheridan College where she graduated in 1999.
Karli’s sculpture is found in the collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark and the Ernsting Stiftung Glass Museum, Germany as well as many private and corporate collections. She shows her work in galleries across Canada and the US.
Karli joined AM Studio in 2014 when she launched the Moonlights pendants to much acclaim at the Interior Design Show in Toronto. She quickly expanded her collection to the Glass Flames and Blooming Post Lamp fixtures.
Beauty and elegance came together in the heart of Europe and made Czech glass, also known as Bohemian, famous for its uniqueness and extraordinary quality. Lasvit, founded in 2007 by Leon Jakimič, sheds a new light on Bohemian glass and takes it into the next millennium. Lasvit combines the authenticity of glass craft with innovative technologies and creative craftsmanship. In a few short years, Lasvit has established itself as the authority delivering bespoke lighting sculptures and art installations made from hand-blown glass.
SIEMON & SALAZAR
Siemon & Salazar has been designing and producing hand blown glass vessels and lighting fixtures in Southern California since 1999. The studio’s aesthetic reflects the evolved craftsmanship of the Muranese tradition coupled with the balance and restraint of the Scandinavians. Caleb Siemon and Carmen Salazar met while undergraduates at the Rhode Island School of Design. Caleb focused on glass, Carmen on sculpture. After RISD, Caleb trained with a renowned master glass blower in Venice, Italy, while Carmen moved to San Francisco, where she worked for an environmental land artist, metal and glass sculptors, and horticulturalists.

These lights are hand made to order in the Czech Republic, the home of quality glass. They strive for great design and modern simplicity, taking production to the very limits of glass-making. They truly showcase a step beyond your expectations of contemporary glass design and craft.
