Gillies Jones Glass
Beautiful contemporary handmade glass
Gillies Jones Glass is a contemporary glass studio open to visitors year round, based in a former blacksmiths in stunning Rosedale Abbey. All their glass is made by hand, inspired by the beauty of their rural surroundings in the North York Moors. Their exceptional glass work is based on the shapes, colour, textures and beauty found in the slow construction of the landscape.
Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones have been making exceptional contemporary blown glass together for over 20 years. Their pieces are made the slow way, just as glass was prior to industrial revolution. 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.
Gillies Jones Glass 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.
