Andrea Kott graduated from Sheridan Institute: Craft and Design majoring in Glass. She makes thoughtful sculptural, functional, and installation work that focuses on concept and material quality. Often using multiples and groupings, her work explores themes of childhood, innocence, and memory as an elusive marker of defining moments. She is curious about the connections between the ephemeral and tangible things that define us. Kott was accepted into Harbourfront Centre’s artist-in-residency programme and awarded a scholarship in 2012. She completed her residency summer 2015, and is continuing to grow her practice as a Toronto designer and maker.
