Jenie Yolland Glass Artist

Getting excited about my new website – almost there – cant wait for you to see it!

I’m almost ready to share my new website with you and I am so excited!

meredith's splot for UK weddingI’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. I might turn it into a clock – not sure yet. Down below a gorgeous green, clear and dichroic “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 shapes … what are these? Glass shellfish perhaps?

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. An adventure!

Life's Colours by Jenie Yolland (2)

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!

Hours of fun, laughter, food, music, sharing, and learning at the studio in Richmond.
