Taking inspiration from life, both in physical forms and from emotional reactions Naomi endeavours to show how both collide and create something so fragile and somehow so strong. Combining Kiln formed glass processes with emotional reactions she expresses strengths and vulnerabilities seen through her personal life that she hopes will relate with others in similar circumstances. A process based glass artist who thrives on pushing the boundaries of conventional processes through challenging them and adapting to suit her needs.
Jacques has developed her own way of working to create the delicate yet strong sculptural vessels she calls this process frit fusion. A process that has taken her time and patience to develop. Specialising in advanced kiln-formed glass techniques – her unique way of working creates individual delicate sculptural pieces.
Light refracting and reflecting gives her work the appearance of diamonds and crystal.
Materialise a nugget of true individual emotion.
