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.

Bowes Museum Christmas Market | 17/12/2014

I'm very excited to be taking part in my first Christmas market, this Sunday, at The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle. The market takes place over the whole weekend (20th & 21st Dec - I'm doing Sun 21st only), from 10am-4pm, and features around 80 stalls selling everything from local food produce, to festive arts and crafts, all set in the grounds of the beautiful Bowes Museum.

I'll be selling some of my larger pieces, including kiln-formed bowls and cast glass sculpture, as well as smaller, more affordable items, perfect for last minute Christmas gifts.
