Jessica Clifford studied for a BA in Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. She spent her degree expanding her experience of glass and practised many technical processes such as fusing, slumping, casting, drop moulds, cold working and also kiln programming. Her inspiration comes from nature, more specifically the sea and life within the sea. Her current work is inspired by her upbringing on the south coast, the natural colours or textures, which start with line drawings from life, and are then incorporated into her glass work. Jess also sells handmade fused dichroic jewellery through her business cliffordjessglass. Jess is currently the glass intern at The Glass Hub.
