Sculptural Vessel ‘Large Finesse’ By Naomi Jacques
Inspired by Nature, this beautiful useable glass sculptural vessel is heavenly. Naomi uses a clear glass sheet upon which glass frits of various sizes are set. The mould for the vessel is handmade by Naomi herself, which creates a wonderous size and shape. The glass frits add a freshness to the vessel, while giving a glorious reflection.
Finesse is a functional vessel, which allows the opportunity to add to its beauty.
This is the first large-scale version of this sculptural vessel collection. A piece to be enjoyed by all!
Sculptural Vessel Artist
Naomi Jacques is a British contemporary artist that works predominantly with glass. She favours the kiln forming process.
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 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 crystal. 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 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.
