After majoring in glass at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Christy Haldane studied at the Canberra School of Art in Australia. It was in Australia that Haldane began to incorporate industrial plate glass (window panes) as a constant in her sculptures. In 2000, she began working with recycled window glass. Working in series, she combines the glass with other common building materials, such as stone, concrete and steel enhancing the fragility and strength of the glass components. Haldane lives on a hobby farm outside of Peterborough, Ontario. Her work focuses on large sculptural installations but includes small scale objects and wearable art.
