Jane Bruce is an acclaimed glassblower who has concentrated her research and practice on the formal and expressive possibilities of the vessel, its form, function, decoration and history.

Despite her focus on the vessel tradition, Bruce's 'objects' serve no practical function. Rather, they are the basis for experiments with technique and form. Here, wheel cutting exposes the internal layers of contrasting colour and pattern.
