About Gillies Jones
Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones have been making exceptional contemporary blown glass together since 1995. Known for their skilfully blown and engraved sculptural vessels and their finely crafted Beautiful Bowls, their work is collected and exhibited in numerous museum collections including the V&A. “Our current work in cameo glass is an exploration, a ‘Portrait’ of the landscape in which we live and work. We observe the current land management practices which leave specific marks within the North York Moors. We apply and engrave layers of coloured glass, making marks which mirror the layers of human endeavour in the landscape.Marks made by people pre and post-industrial, etched into the land, overlaid and often reclaimed by natures hand. “
