25 Works, 25 Years in Glass 1988-2013
Jayne Duryea's work features the traditional offhand Italian glass blowing techniques of hot sculptured glass. Her works are three-dimensional expressions, extremely alive and fluid, with a deep connection to nature, constantly surprising, and inspiring.
This exhibition is a survey of glass works produced over my 25 years in hot glass.
I have displayed the contemporary glass on antique stands as a reference to the
The juxtaposition of Contemporary Glass and the Antique,
an interesting concept to me.
These techniques are the new contemporary studio glass. There is nothing new under the sun, only new experiences and new expressions through new creative people. Unlike Italy in the past, America offers the opportunity to be free, a new liberation, a hunger for technical knowledge, an artistic expression in glass as opposed to the constraints of tradition of the glass factories in Murano.
