Jenny is a glass artist who not only recognises the decorative qualities of glass, but also the significant role glass has played in scientific discoveries, from the humble test tube to the microscope.

EXPLORING THE INTERFACE BETWEEN ART AND SCIENCE
Most recently she has been investigating the role glass has played in the restimulation of neural pathways. Through extensive experimentation in glass and copper, which are used in some electrical interfaces, Jenny has adapted and refined traditional glass techniques to create a series of free-standing glass sculptures that reflect the neuron form; the basic building blocks of the nervous system.
