MY DESIGN JOURNEY
Jazz has always been creative. She has designed opera sets and stage costumes and has many years’ experience designing and teaching crafts. In 2011 Jazz embarked on formal art training completing her Art and Design Foundation in 2013. It was during this time that Jazz first encountered glass, she went on to study BA hons Designer Maker at The University of Brighton, graduating in 2016 where she specialised in glass. She has exhibited widely within the UK and is represented in several galleries and shops. Since graduation she has been teaching glass and has gained a reputation as a very patience and knowledgeable tutor.
Her work is inspired by the very nature of the material she works with. It is hard but soft, strong but fragile. The intensity of colour and the way light plays with the material. She draws further inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, local gardens and the stunning Sussex landscape.
