Flameworking

Kirill Korzinski’s family immigrated to Canada from Ukraine in 1994, after the Soviet Union collapsed. Although his experiences as an immigrant don’t directly inform his work, he credits Canada for providing him with opportunities to study and refine his craft. Korzinski says “I try to relate my human experience and emotions into the glass. Currently I relate to the ‘fight’ within my work a lot. This stems from the competitive and survivalist nature of our industry. I’m still fighting for my spot.”

Kirill Korzinski received an Advanced Diploma in Glass in the Craft and Design Program at Sheridan. While at Sheridan, he received the Nortel Award for his glass work.
