Renato Foti is an artist working mainly in fused and bent glass for large scale installations. He studied at Pilchuck, Penland and Urban Glass, after first completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Western Ontario. During this time, he began to cast glass in sculptural forms and develop new bodies of work. For a large portion of his career, Renato worked to open a production glass table top company called Trio Design Glassware, which still produces smaller fine craft items.
Currently, Renato’s main focus is working on larger scale, wall-hung glass sculptures. He is also working on new mixed media sculptures which incorporate glass and other materials.
