We are rather thrilled to be welcoming Jenny Hoole glass artist to the Buckinghamshire Craft Guild. Jenny makes work using a variety of techniques including fusing and painting with glass enamels. Her established collections include large platters, standing curves and fabulous large abstract glass and rubber pendants.
Jenny has a background in fashion design which she states has a major influence on the glass pieces she makes – whether it is about the colour, texture and pattern or a suggestion of form. The style of a functional vessel or piece of jewellery can be affected by her selection of raw materials. The inclusion of metals, enamels or oxides also play their part in determining the outcome of the final artwork.
Jenny really loves the contradictions of fashioning glass as a medium, it is rigid and fragile, solid, yet amorphous, challenging and compelling.
