Drawing inspiration from the gardens that surround her Vermont home and studio, Jen Violette enjoys creating pieces that document and preserve the scenes of growth from seed to sprout to harvest. In her gardens she grows vegetables, fruits and perennials and she is inspired by the daily changes that emerge and enjoys recreating these actions with molten glass.
Glass art is as contradictory as it is versatile: functional pieces are still fragile, an object’s weight often belies what the eye expects, and a glass piece may appear to be the single moment of inspiration of an artist, when it is in fact the result of years of study, repetition, and hard work behind a hot torch.
