Glass Making & Stained Glass

About Naomi
Naomi Jacques is a contemporary glass artist/maker who works from her own studio in Staffordshire. Conceptually inspired and process led, Naomi makes unique works often creating a series of pieces that challenge the medium of glass through the kiln-forming process. The sculptures, which seem impossibly fragile, are strong enough to support themselves. Naomi’s work has been described as looking like diamonds, crystals and ice.

Biography Back to top

Process and concept inspired contemporary glass artist Naomi Jacques works with Bullseye glass to create delicate yet strong glass sculptural works.

Creating work out of a material which is perceived as fragile and in some cases dangerous aids Naomi to explore fragilities, strengths and challenge these dangers in a metaphorical and aesthetical way.

Her sculptures draw inspiration from the female form as well as familiar everyday vessel forms.
