Molten Glass Sculpture ‘Town Beach’ by Jenny Ayrton
The wire and molten glass sculpture “Town Beach” represents the decision-making moments we come across in everyday life. Faced with a choice of the beach or the town, which would you choose when armed with no more than a push bike?
The simplicity of this molten glass and wire sculpture makes a perfect representation of the everyday life of the artist. Standing at 14cm tall and 20cm wide, the molten glass sculpture “Town Beach” should be positioned in your favourite “thinking” area of the home.
Allow you mind to drift away, imagining the different scenarios as they unfold. From one simple decision that is made, not just your day, but your whole future could change forever. Each of Jenny’s pieces tells a different tale, a simple and everyday occurrence, captured forever within a miniature world of glass.
Molten Glass Sculpture ‘Town Beach’ Artist

Jenny’s artistic flair takes its inspiration from her own day to day experiences living in Devon. No day out or short trip is complete for Jenny without capturing a “moment”. Each moment she then takes back to her studio with her, ready to turn it into a molten glass and wire masterpiece.
