Predominantly vessel work, Jessica’s art is both functional and sculptural ranging from vibrant and dramatic to subdued. Her narrative work is pre­dominantly in cameo style which utilises engraving and sandblasting techniques to create imagery on glass. Much of her work seeks to capture the sublime and destructive beauty of nature or draws inspiration from classical artefacts juxtaposed with today’s contemporary, technologically driven society. Jessica is the 2019 winner of the Ausglass Vicki Torr Emerging Artist prize, finalist in the Pro Hart Art Prize (Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery) and Milano Vetro -35 glass prize in Italy.
