Renato Foti (Canadian)

Fused & Slumped Glass Sculpture Artist

Renato Foti’s fine art glass focusses on fused and slumped wall sculptures.  Foti’s large scale glass pieces are stunning in any space.  His glass pieces are composed of fused glass made out of a variety of color segments forming a vibrance of color and energy.  These fused glass pieces stand alone for their sheer complexity and saturation through translucent light and movement.  The contemporary Color Wall Series sculptures are typically made up of linear lines, with variations at different angles as well as sections that are rectangular, forming a harmonic pattern.  In these modern cubes, a variety of colors, and lines build these beautiful sculptures that can be hung un diverse directions in a variety of spaces.

Renato Foti creates these stunning glass pieces from scientific and atomic inspirations. The Retro Mesh series encourages discussion between positive and negative spaces, and how this interaction of such space really mirrors our existence in a more atomic level. We understand that all solids have voids where atoms float in “space” forming the shape; thus, the “Mesh” pattern here reflects a similar concept. The combination of a wide variety of colors also forms a delicate balance while adding a dynamic element to each piece.

Renato’s current projects will consist of the large scale “Retro Mesh” pieces and the linear bent “Color Wall Series” pieces to be exhibited at a various of Galleries across North America.  Creating large scale fused glass sculptures pushes the limit for studio made glass, therefore, hoping to develop a new market in the commercial and hospitality industry. The scale of these creations makes them even more unique and aids in the elevation of the “Fused Glass Art Form” internationally.

Renato continues to work on more sculptural pieces as well including my new mannequin series and an “Art Bus” project where a Bus will be transformed slowing into a very cool modern space for art & recreation.
