About

Devon-based Jenny Ayrton captures miniature wonderlands in molten glass. Her delightfully domestic sculptures are inspired by familiar everyday details, from washing lines to camping scenes and seaside vistas. She begins by drawing in wire, then carefully encases the delicate metal doodles within a block of glass using a sand-casting technique. The unpredictable flow of the glass brings each scene to life, and ensures that every piece is unique.
