Jessica completed her B.A. degree in Glass & Ceramics in 2006, and M.A. in 2009, through the University of Sunderland at the National Glass Centre. She has found success in a number of competitions, undertaking a variety of exciting commissions for a diverse group of clients. Her ability to adapt and change her style to meet specific briefs, whilst still retaining a distinctive look to her work, is an important factor in her success. Whilst she enjoys the diversity and challenge of meeting a wide range of such commissions, Jessica’s real passion is for designing and making cast and kiln-formed glass.
Strong drawing skills underpin all aspects of Jessica’s work, as can be seen through her designs and her use of transfers applied directly on to glass.
I'm really pleased to have been invited by Nature in Art to take part in their exhibition of British contemporary crafts. An art gallery & museum dedicated solely to art inspired by nature, Nature in Art's unrivalled collection is housed in a beautiful Georgian mansion, close to the cathedral city of Gloucester. As well as its permanent collection, the museum & gallery hosts an ever-changing programme of events, activities and exhibitions throughout the year.
Pieces from my 'Transfer Bowl Range' will be showing, alongside work by other wildlife artists in wood, metal, glass and ceramics. 'British Contemporary Crafts' runs from Tues Nov 19th, until Sun December 22nd.
Please see my 'Web Links' page for further info.
