Kate Jones

1966, United Kingdom

Created with Stephen Gillies, with whom Jones makes many works in collaboration, this exquisite collection of works are attributed solely to Jones, with the understanding that Gillies is the glassmaker (his driving force is the making of each piece to the best of his considerable ability) but where Jones, trained as a painter (having adapted her visual skill to mark making on glass) is the artist, breathing life into each artwork, giving each its unique beauty.

The partnership, established in 1995, continues to explore the unique qualities of the material and Stephen Gillies & Kate Jones have their work in the permanent collection of the V&A, and the specialist glass collections of The Museum for Modern Glass Coburg Germany, Broadfield House Glass Museum Dudley and Ebeltoft Glass Museum Denmark.

Gillies & Jones have also exhibited their objects in numerous exhibitions including touring with The British Council, The International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa Japan & 8th Chenongi Craft Biennale, Korea & Taste, Geneva. Works are in the permanent collections of The Farringdon Collection Oxford, Bolton Museum & Art Gallery, Cartwright Hall Bradford, Cannon Hall Barnsley, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and National Museum Scotland.
