Jared Last has been awarded the 2022 RBC Award for Glass by the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery in Waterloo, Ontario. Alongside this prestigious title, Last will receive a $10,000 grant in support of his residency and continued explorations into glass art. A 2016 graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design, Last has studied widely, attending classes at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Pilchuck Glass School as well as Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre. Last combines his experiences and interest in architecture, pattern, and color into functional and sculptural pieces. His work will be featured in an awards exhibition with works by his fellow awards finalists, Charlie Lauche-Potvin, Jeanne Létourneau, and Jérémie St-Onge.
