Glass Sculptural Art ‘Touch of The Sea’ By Naomi Jacques
Touch of the sea is a winsome piece of glass sculptural art. Naomi uses her own personal blend of coloured pieces with various grains of clear glass to create this unassuming piece. Fused into one piece which is then formed over a handmade mould which itself has been inspired by natural forms.
Touch of the Sea has been inspired by British Coastlines. Like the sea crashing against the shores in waves of fury. Naomi’s special technique of frit fusion creates an appearance like that of diamonds and gems. The jewels of the sea!
No two pieces of glass sculptural art made in this way will ever be the same. Each sculpture is unique and individual.
Glass Sculptural Art Artist
In the same year that she graduated from the University of Wolverhampton, attaining a BA (Hons) in Applied Arts, Naomi’s work ‘Mother’ was commended by the Contemporary Glass Society in The Glass Prize 2016.
Working from her studio in Staffordshire in the Midlands, she creates bespoke glass art sculptures.
Naomi has an interest in the science involved in glass fusing. She relishes challenging and adapting kiln-forming processes. While always looking to push the conventional boundaries to challenge the usability of the form by material and processes used to create. Naomi’s signature process, ‘Frit Fusion,’ has been developed to convey that even when broken and feeling unworthy one can rebuild, strengthen and shine again – broken truly is beautiful.
By refracting and reflecting light through her work, Naomi gives her glass sculptures the appearance of diamonds and crystals. Naomi looks to materialise a nugget of true individual emotion.
Naomi had the pleasure of working with Swarovski® Cut Crystal after meeting Ute Schumacher – Director of Creative Direction and Design Network at SWAROVSKI®. Material exploration is fascinating to Naomi and she is looking forward to future material explorations and developing her work further. Naomi welcomes commissions and enjoys creating personalised glass for art for clients.
With a passion for promoting wellbeing and introducing people to the joys of fused glass processes. Naomi runs local art workshops for all ages and abilities, where she teaches kiln-formed methods.
