Silvia Taylor has been working with glass since she was seventeen years old.
Since graduating from the Craft and Design program at Sheridan College in 2011 she has had many opportunities to continue her glass blown work. Silvia fulfilled the role of teacher’s assistant at Sheridan, later became a resident at Blown Away Glass Studio, and then moved to Toronto to start the Artist-In-Residence program at Harbourfront Centre in 2013.
Silvia has been a grateful recipient of awards from the Glass Art Association of Canada, Craft Ontario, and Harbourfront Centre. She has also participated in a number of shows and gallery exhibitions over the last seven years including The Artist Project, One of A Kind Show, and the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Silvia has participated in many collaborations with other artists and has taught multiple workshops. Her installation work can be seen in the permanent collections in the Daniels Corp Condominium on Toronto’s waterfront.
Recently, Silvia sat on the board of the Glass art Association of Canada as secretary for over three years and completed her four-year residency in the glass studio at Toronto’s Harbourfront centre.
Currently, Silvia is developing a new body of work with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and continues to develop her installation, sculptural, and design work.
