Jill Bagnall

Jill creates stunning, contemporary studio glass, by hand, from start to finish. Using high quality materials and modern equipment for ancient processes and enjoying the challenge of this sometimes-unpredictable media. Knowing that the result will be enriched by that unique interaction between glass and light; light breathes life into glass.

Fusing Ideas relocated to a larger studio in Bishop’s Castle, in the heart of the Shropshire Hills, in Autumn 2022, Jill’s been dreaming of this for a while now, so it’s very exciting.
A small display of Jill’s glass will front the space with more room for developing her own designs and a wider range of workshops.
Jill is a member of both Worcestershire and Shropshire Guilds of Contemporary Craft and exhibits with the guilds and at Art Fairs in and around the West Midlands.
