Jenny Sharp is a south east London glass artist who has been working with glass for over twenty years.
She first studied at the City Lit and later completed her City and Guilds Certificate and Diploma. Jenny was in the last cohort to study the Post Graduate Certificate at Central Saint Martins before the move of site closed the course.
She has a studio near the Thames Barrier which allows her to carry out commissions, develop her art works and teach stained glass classes for beginners. Jenny is interested in layering and printing on glass, fusing and slumping to give different dimensions and textures to her work. She is currently exploring the juxtaposition of natural forms with man made structures, deconstructing both, using the images to produce new works.
In 2014 she completed a collaborative commission for Colchester Radiotherapy Centre which is on permanent display at the new hospital.
Her work with maps has led her to produce commissioned “map” dishes and bowls, along with other household items. She has recently started working with Bullseye Reactive glass and enjoys the element of the unexpected in using such materials.
She has been taking part in the Catford Arts Trail Open House since its inception and now in its 5th year.
