About Naomi Jacques

Naomi Jacques is a contemporary glass artist living in Stafford working from her own studio; graduated in 2016 from University of Wolverhampton with BA (Hons) in Applied Arts. Her work ‘Mother Torso’ was Commended by the Contemporary Glass Society in the ‘The Glass Prize 2016’.

Naomi’s work draws inspiration from exploring emotional battles. Using the medium of glass she turns weakness into strength – demonstrating that good can shine through, strength can be regained and broken can be beautiful.

Inspired initially by events in her life, Jacques has developed a process she calls Frit Fusion and is constantly working and developing her process.

The recent collections available have been made to show how this process can be adapted adding colour, glass beads, and strings of glass.

Specialising in advanced kiln-formed glass techniques – Naomi’s unique way of working creates individual delicate sculptural pieces.

Light refracting and reflecting gives her work the appearance of diamonds and crystal.

 All Naomi’s works are one of a kind pieces. If you would like to know more please contact Naomi on : naomi@naomijacques.co.uk

Commissions are considered and Naomi does enjoy a challenge so please do get in touch. The largest to date piece of frit fusion Naomi has made was a full sized mother torso - so large scale is something that can be obtained in this medium.
