Jenny Ayrton

Jenny creates miniature scenes in wire and molten glass. Inspiration comes from everyday scenes; a washing line blowing wildly on the first day of spring, garden tools left mid-task..
Scenes are directly influenced by her life as a Devon-based mum; following visits to the towns, beach and moor she creates tiny wire sketches based on the day’s observations. She then uses a sand-casting technique to encase the wire models between layers of molten glass. It’s the unpredictable and uncontrollable flow of the glass which brings each scene to life, creating the breeze in the washing and the foliage on the trees.
