Jahday Ford

Jahday Ford is a Glass Artist and Designer from Bermuda, currently based in Manchester, UK.

He is a graduate from Manchester School of Art where he received his BA Degree in Three-Dimensional Design, specialising in hot glass fabrication and mould design. Using a combination of glass blowing and digitally programmed forms, Ford explores ways of drastically changing the materiality of his objects, effectively bonding these two diverse processes.

He’s participated in a variety of exhibitions in the UK and internationally and in 2020 took part in the HOME Manchester Future 20 Collective Artist Residency & Exhibition. His award-winning projects ‘Breathe’ and ‘Deconstruct’ have been exhibited in galleries including Corning Museum of Glass, New Designers, London Design Junction, Manchester Craft & Design Centre and The National Centre for Craft & Design in Lincolnshire.
