Welcome

Jessica is a UK-based cast & kiln-formed glass artist, whose work takes inspiration from nature and the animal world. Her long-standing interest in fashion, as well as fine and costume jewellery, also heavily influences her ideas.

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.

Saltaire Arts Trail 2017 | 11/05/2017

I'm really excited to be taking part in this year's Saltaire Arts Trail, run by Saltaire Inspired. Taking place over the last weekend in May, the trail features over 100 artists and makers, selling work in a diverse range of media. The artists are - or are hosted by - Saltaire residents, who open their homes for the duration of the trail, meaning visitors have the opportunity to chat with them and learn about the work while browsing.

The trail runs from Sat 27th until Mon 29th May, with the preview evening on Friday 26th. For more information on the artists takig part, visit Saltaire Inspired's website at http://www.saltaireinspired.org.uk/galleries/saltaire-arts-trail-may-2017/
