After featuring on the emerging talent section of Very First To My work was published in High End Magazine.

"Made from shards of transparent, clear, bullseye glass, this sculptural art bowl was created by artist Naomi Jacques. “This piece in particular depicts an evocative balance between fragility and strength. I wanted to create something that celebrates a beauty that can often only be found resurfacing from darkness,” says Jacques. Although the bowl appears precarious to handle due to its blend of glass pieces, a process Jacques calls “glass frit fusion” that took several years to master, she explains it to be “very tactile and can be held delicately, but it definitely will not cut you.” Likened to a sheet of raw-cut diamond by viewers, Jacques imagines her piece to function as a “conversation appetizer, a thought-provoking creation that people can talk about and reflect upon its meaning."
