Growing up on Canada’s west coast, Jeff always felt intimately connected to nature. The mountains, trees and ocean inspired his imagination. His hands were his creative tools and he thought wood was his medium. Chasing his dream of building wooden boats, Jeff travelled to Ontario to be part of Sheridan College’s woodworking program. The school forced him to choose a second medium as part of the curriculum, so he picked glass on a whim.
He established the Jeff Goodman Glass Studio in 1989. He built a studio environment where designers, artists and architects can collaborate and fully explore the infinite possibilities of glass. The Studio’s constant desire to experiment and create continues to grow since Jeff’s passing. The calm, innovative and productive atmosphere he fostered remains a home for the group of creative artists he mentored and inspired.
Jeff Goodman Studio has attracted international recognition for the elegance of its modern blown glass vessels, large-scale installations and innovative architectural glass. Every piece created is one-of-a-kind and hand-made by our team in our Toronto studio. We work closely with individuals, interior designers, architects and developers for both residential and commercial interiors.
