Getting excited about my new website – almost there.
I’m almost ready to share my new website with you and I am so excited!
This is what the items look like in my new shop on my website.
I’ll be showing you my latest works and talking to you about what has inspired me and how it went, expressing an idea in glass – playing with colours and powders, techniques, textures and ideas. Up above you can see a new “Splat” bowl and another “Splat” that I turned into a clock.
Down below a gorgeous ruby red, clear and cherry red art glass “woven” fruitbowl. Very time consuming but always popular!
The inspiration of travel always gets my creative juices flowing – like our recent visit to Barcelona for example:
This standing sculpture was inspired by Gaudi’s colourful, eclectic architecture.
And this is what I make after a night watching fireworks!
Sometimes I am just having fun in the studio, experimenting, learning … trying new techniques …
… playing with a whole new way of using the glass and new temperatures … seeing what the glass does … never quite sure what we will find when we open the kiln!
… and more drips and shapes and fun with glass, I haven’t added any of “My Girls” to my website yet. I hope you like them, this girl is called Cornelia.
From my first attempt at creating an image in powder to admiring leadlight techniques and recreating them in warm glass … every day is a discovery.
Seeing the way colours work together.
And I love working in monochrome schemes – using tone and shade rather than different colours, especially when winter landscapes are around me. Or modern kitchens!
I must admit I can’t resist creating bling to play with …
… and there’s always jewellery to create – sometimes in collaboration with other artists like this piece here … created with silversmith Meredith Hoult with whom I shared a very successful joint exhibition at Appleton Street Studios in Richmond, Victoria.
And often I go to work just for the fun of creating something totally unique that someone can wear and enjoy, and tell the world “it’s the only one like it!”
I love sharing my skills and ideas – and there are always more ideas to share and to teach!
Yes, we share a meal during most of my workshops.
And there are photo sessions to set up and edit.
Exhibitions to share with friends, and family.
And these are just a few of my favourite things that I’ll be able to share with you when the supa-doopa new website is up and running! I feel my life is so blessed with good things, and I can’t wait to welcome you there.
https://jenieyolland.com is nearly ready to show you!
See you there? I do hope so.
