On Restaurants As a food lover, Jess’s work celebrates the abundance and joy that are central to the restaurant dining experience. The luscious, vibrant palette of Jess’s flower vases and bowls enliven the space. While her bespoke lighting installations and seductive votives establish a sense of intoxication, romance, and satisfaction. Jess’s vision is to riff off of what is authentically appealing about the restaurant space by complimenting it with her unique design sense and individually hand crafted glass art.
On Jess Jess’s work combines sculpture, hot glass, and drawing to captivate and challenge viewers. The work of creating a considered design and realizing it as a physical object is Jess’s primary inspiration. Jess earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts at the Rhode Island School of Design, after which she ran the education program at Public Glass, the largest public access glass studio in San Francisco. Today Jess’s glass is featured in museum shops, galleries, and private collections across the country. Her work is divided into two categories: functional, one-of-akind blown glass vessels and custom residential and commercial lighting.
