Tank

Tank is home to artists Amy Johnson & Jill Cribbin. The studio is nestled in one of Toronto's most popular destinations, the Historic Distillery District.

Amy Johnson, is a Graduate of Crafts & Design/Glassblowing from the Sheridan Institute.

Amy states frequently, "I have the best job in the world, I get to play with fire and colour all day." Enthusiasm for her material process combined with a strong desire to challenge the perception of what is seen as precious and wearable today, Amy's work is stunning, diverse, and unusual. The wearer feels the weight of the piece and it warms to the body, offering a physical experience when worn.

Working in traditional methods, but with a non-conformist approach to jewelry design, Amy is very deliberate in her choices about why she works with glass and silver. The result of this collaboration reveals a modern aesthetic that unites a sophisticated colour palate, an irreverent sense of humour and detailed craftsmanship.

Jill launched herself into the world of glass flameworking ten years ago at an intensive workshop at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY. Since then she has studied with numerous recognized beadmakers. Jill finds inspiration collaborating with her Studio Partner, Amy Johnson and from her studio setting at the Historic Distillery District.

To create modern, wearable jewelry, by using traditional tools & methods. Striving to maintain the balance of individual design with creative collaborative efforts, resulting in a cohesive, seamless line of work.
