Jessica works in a number of materials, sculptural beads, paper, and ungalvanized steel armatures. Her work was featured at the Smithsonian Craft Show and at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria.
Jessica has talked of using the change in studio space to allow her to take her work to a larger scale. Ms Beels said that she should be all settled in by the end of the next month or so.
We welcome Jessica to the 'hood - and look forward to seeing alot of great new work from her!
The Washington Glass School is a unique educational program in the Nation's Capital area, operating as the sculptural glass education, artistic and community center and resource for the mid-Atlantic region, serving students, artists and the general public. It encourages research and exploration of new techniques in all aspects of glass (blown, cast, fused, cold worked) as well as other media such as steel, ceramics, lighting and concrete. Our goal is to introduce artists in other media to the depth, processes and joys of glass to enhance their work.
