Jennifer Barnds began with lampworking, slowly moving toward larger-scale paperweights and glass blowing. By transitioning away from beads toward larger objects, she hopes to bridge the gap between lampworking and glassblowing. Jennifer brings with her the skills of small-scale lampworking, importing new levels of detail and skill to blown glass and paperweights. Jennifer draws her training from many varied classes and teachers from across the country, constantly learning and exchanging skills with other artists in her field. Having spent 20 years in the corporate business world, Barnds has the unique advantage of marketing and business sense.
