Layne is an award-winning glass sculptor who works to create unique sculptural forms that arise from harnessing glass’ contradictory qualities. He focuses on representing nature’s movement, mottled colours and textures. Many of his pieces feature “glass swarf” a unique form of kiln glass developed by him.

This year he finished a large permanent installation in the Chapel Foyer at Tyndale University, Toronto. Entitled, “Time in Tessellate”, it features four 2.25m sets of backlit fused glass panels.

His works are in private collections at MGM Grand Las Vegas, Square Inc. Canada and Florian Condos Toronto. One of his works was also used in two episodes of Star Trek Discovery, S2. He won the Toronto Outdoor Founder’s Prize in 2017 and other awards include two with the Ontario Clay and Glass Association.

Layne operates a glass studio and gallery in Toronto where he also teaches glass workshops for all ages.
