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.
It was lovely to be asked to take part in 'One of a Kind' at Cecilia Colman Gallery, where I'll be showing a 'Large Sheep Landscape' from my 'Rocky Mountain Sheep Series'. The exhibition features a selection of one-off pieces, many of which have been specially designed to celebrate the Gallery's forthcoming 40th anniversary.
Located in the bustling heart of St John's Wood, London, Cecilia Colman Gallery represents contemporary artists from around the UK, working in a wide variety of disciplines. 'One of a Kind' runs from November 10th until the end of January 2017.
