About the Artist:

After majoring in glass at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Christy Haldane studied for a semester at the Canberra School of Art in Australia. It was in Australia that Haldane began to incorporate recycled window glass as a constant in her sculptures. Christy draws inspiration from her location, and incorporates found materials such as stone, concrete, and wood into her sculptures.

“Her process is about capturing moments of history in found objects and then fusing these together to create a new story. That process is exemplified in her popular “Memory Stones,” one-of-a-kind stone-and-glass pendants, lone sculptures, and memorial sculptures. You provide her with stones you have collected that mean something to you — whether from a special place, person, or time in your life — and Christy incorporates them into a piece of art you can cherish forever.” —kawarthaNOW.com, reprinted with permission

Haldane lives outside of Peterborough, Ontario. Her work ranges from small scale wearable art to large sculptural installations.
