Siobhan Jones

Siobhan studied glass at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham where she obtained a BA (Hon's) degree in 'Three Dimension Design in Glass'. Following her graduation in 1996 she set up a studio workshop which has been growing in strength ever since.

Siobhan is greatly inspired by light in all it's different qualities and the part it can play in bringing life to an object. She works exclusively with high quality translucent and opalescent glass, which is tested for colour compatibility. The glass is hand cut and arranged, then fused in the kiln with occasional copper inclusions creating unique 'one off' signed pieces.

Shaping thin canes of glass, layering colour and the positioning of the glass creates additional depth in the most recent two dimensional wall installations for the corporate and domestic interior, a contemporary twist to the traditional picture. Siobhan has also creates bespoke garden sculpture to compliment any exterior and added leaded glass to her repertoire.

Working with private clients, art consultancies, galleries, county councils & NHS trusts, Siobhan can provide stunning glass solutions with a warm and professional approach for both residential and commercial projects. Consulting with clients to define and develop their requirements, care is taken to select the right colour balance, environment, budget and style which is most appropriate for the commission.

Siobhan's work can be used for many applications; her commissions to date include room partitions, tables, windows, kitchen splash backs, together with numerous wall installations. Housing some of Siobhan's commissions are venues such as cruise liners, French and Chinese Embassy’s, libraries, health clubs and hospitals.

Siobhan runs one day workshops ‘An Introduction to Fused Glass’ where you will gain an understanding of the materials, techniques and processes involved while producing your own masterpiece! Using sheet glass, frits, stringers and wire, you will be shown how to cut glass, add inclusions and create voids & bubbles. Siobhan will pump you with inspiration during a fun fuelled day of creativity.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
