Jenny Gaynor

Jenny Gaynor, a Los Angeles-based artist known for her airy, almost ethereal glass creations seeks to provide meaning to the things we touch everyday, thus creating handmade pieces of jewelry and art. Using her exceptional skills deriving from years of training under world-renown glass artists in Murano, Italy, Gaynor's vision to defeat redundancy has made her succeed in creating something that is truly unique.

Gaynor began working with glass in 1999 at Tulane University in New Orleans and got her Masters in Art Therapy at Southern Illinois University. She broadened her skills from glassblowing to lampworking, and with an insatiable desire to improve her proficiency, Gaynor spent several summers in Murano, Italy studying with the masters at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass and at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York.

In 2003 Jenny used her art therapy background to develop a children's program while in Murano. The program is still part of the annual curriculum at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass today. The marriage of her background as an art therapist and glass artist is beautifully portrayed in the use of symbolism in her art.

Gaynor's past accomplishments also include production glass blowing for Nuance Glass Studio in New Orleans, LA and Third Degree Glass Factory in St. Louis, MO where she also spent two years teaching glassblowing and lampworking.

Gaynor's vision is conveyed through the transparent quality of the glass medium itself. She fabricates all the glass components on her torch using the traditional Muranese lampworking technique and combines them with sparkling semi-precious gemstones. Whether in her lampwork jewelry or newly introduced custom photo transfer vases, her final products are a whimsical, charming, truly one of a kind piece of art.

All pieces are created by hand in Jenny's studio in Los Angeles, California. collection

    Comments about CUSTOM ROUND MEMORY VASE:

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for "people who have everything." It's definitely unique and I think they will enjoy its funkiness. Not sure I'd have paid [$] for it in a store but overall I think it's a great gift for those who are difficult to buy for.

        I gave this as a gift to my sister for her bridal shower. It was the hit of the party and brought her to tears to see photos documenting her and her fiance's relationship. Great for a special occasion.

          I bought this gift for my Mom and Dad for their 37th wedding anniversary. I used all their old black and white wedding photos. They absolutely loved it but I wish I had chosen the colored version. [...] Especially since the end product was so beautiful. I highly recommend it :)

            This product was a gift for a 'milestone' birthday for my mother. She was in tears as she saw all her pictures in the vase. Well made, and the designer was very attentive to every detail.

                Comments about CUSTOM ROUND MEMORY VASE:

                We ordered two of these vases as thank you gifts to our parents with our wedding photos on them, and we are so very pleased with how they turned out. The overall quality is very good. The vase is large and sturdy. I just wish I had included more photos so there wouldn't be duplicates. However, the artist has a good eye for photo arrangement. They really turned out great!

                Service and delivery comments:

                Thanks to the folks at Uncommongoods for their prompt attention to an error I made on my order. They called me immediately to resolve the matter. Excellent customer service!
