Gillies Jones Glass

Partners in life and art, Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones have been making exceptional contemporary blown glass together for over 20 years. Their pieces are made in Yorkshire, the slow way, just as glass was prior to industrial revolution – labour intensive and reliant on the skills acquired over a long, international apprenticeship.

Operating from their studio and workshop in the village of Rosedale Abbey in the North Yorkshire Moors, they have developed a unique aesthetic, drawing inspiration from the elemental beauty of their rural surroundings.

They have received worldwide recognition for their complex cameo works, the traditional methods they use are practised by only a few glass makers across the world. This process involves the folding of different coloured glass bubbles over each other to produce a complex multi-layered and coloured piece.

Their defiantly decorative work can be found in both public and private collections locally, nationally and internationally. Alongside their craft practice, they also undertake prestigious commissions and regularly lecture in the UK and overseas.
