Jill Bagnall – Glass

I've always been a maker! Leaning towards the practical rather than the esoteric.

For the last decade or more I've focused on Glass, creating kiln-formed, predominantly fused, glass. Experimenting with colour and pattern, in compliment & contrast; enriched by the unique interaction between glass and light.

Kiln-formed processes have ancient origins and yet glass is still not a totally predictable and well-behaved media, this only serves to make the exploration more exciting and challenging in equal measure.
My designs are inspired by science & geometry; often complex, usually ordered & balanced though not necessarily symmetrical. My colour choices are inspired by nature - where, actually, anything goes! And I use high quality art glass for the choice and richness of colours.

I love the abstract of Kandinsky, the exuberance of Gaudi, the elegance of Bauhaus & the geometry of Art Deco. And 'that quote' from William Morris "have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful" is my mantra!
