Presenting Kate Jones at Gillies Jones

16th June 2015

Presenting Kate Jones at Gillies Jones
Gillies Jones established their partnership in 1995 with a shared passion to explore their chosen medium. Works are created with Stephen Gillies as the glass maker and Kate Jones as the ‘painter’. However rather than employing a brush and paint, Jones cuts and engraves the glass surface, embellishing each blown form with highly detailed patterns and textures.

Their current work, ‘Landscape Studies’, is informed by the visual experience of the remarkable landscape in which they live and work.

In their own words;

“Our works observe the evident structure of the landscape within the North York Moors. The pieces reflect the changing light from vast skies falling upon complex layers of lines, shapes, colour, textures, and explores the beauty found in it's slow construction, carved and eroded by thousands of years of land management and the harsh northern elements.”

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.

They have 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.
