Jessamy Kelly Scoops craft&design Selected Gold Award for Glass

Author:Jessamy Kelly

In 2009 Jessamy won the first craft&design Selected Maker of the Year Award as well as the Selected Gold Award for glass.  She also won 1st Prize at the 2010 Winter Exhibition at The Meffan in Forfar, Scotland.  Jessamy lives and works in Edinburgh but also has a studio in Sunderland. 

Specialist judge for Glass is internationally renowned glass artist, Peter Layton who has been actively involved in the studio glass movement since its inception in this country.  His studio, London Glassblowing was established in 1976 and he initiated and chaired the Contemporary Glass Society during its early years. Peter Layton explains:  “Jessamy Kelly’s cast work stood out, head and shoulders above any other submission, a tour de force aesthetically and technically. “She combines glass and ceramics - obviously not impossible, but extremely difficult by any standard, and she achieves this complex task with great confidence in simple and satisfying monolithic forms juxtaposed in sculptural groupings.”
