I found out about Gilles Jones Glass when I was reading up on Jigisha Patel who is featured in my previous post.It is so interesting how cyberspace enables such discoveries.
I particularly liked the acoustic bowls and the Aesculus designed by Kate Jones and realised by glassmakes Stephen Gilles. You can see their product range on their website and blog
The Aesculus bowl (green one in the pic above),made in sand carved blown glass is inspired by the horse chestnut seed. The layers are a metaphor for evolving form and thought. The first pic which is of Acoustic owl is a recent design.
