Crash: These designs originate from a fascination with the ocean and the powerful forces of nature. The waves rise, fall and crash as it reshapes the land to its will. She imagines these motions as she applies her design to the pieces. Drawn to the sea, with red flags that warn of danger, recreating the exhilaration of working with glass.
Recycled Glass: Conscious of the sustainability and environmental impact of her practice, Jess collects her waste produce and creates new work from the fragments of glass.
Inspired by our impact on the natural world. These pieces are created by hitting the glass with a hammer, causing the top layer to crack and fracture, recreating the destruction we have caused. The glass is then heated to seal the cracks as an attempted to reverse the damage that has been done, yet it is still visible. However, there is a new-found beauty in this and we should encourage one another to play our part.
