Sarinda Jones Artist
Sarinda Jones is an artist that has inspired me to work in Bullseye Powered Frit. Working in kiln-formed glass Sarinda who was name after her 2 grandmothers Sandra and Linda studied glass at the internationally renowned Pilchuck Glass School as well as North Lands Creative glass in Scotland.
She describes her approach to working with glass as minimalistic that give it a contemporary feel that illuminates the simple beauty. And says that a piece of glass can appear invisible at one moment and opaque another through its display of reflection.

Her work is about abstraction and adds texture, colour, flatness, and depth into the same piece with just powders. Some of her finished works have been fired up to ten times in reduced temperatures. She believes in breaking the rules in glass working.
I first found out about her work in a YouTube video search and then moved to a live link on the website Curious Mondo where she demonstrated over 3 evenings how she worked in powders and pushed the boundaries.

Her work “Parley’s Undercurrent” that she made in 2019 is a Public Artwork displayed at Fire Station #3 in Salt Lake City that goes around the first floor and follows up the staircase. And her 3-piece glass work called DNA won her awards. But she not only works in glass powders as paint or Glass for sculptures, but makes fine glass jewellery.
