During her freshman year studying fashion at Parsons School of Design, Jill Davis realized her clothes were more like wearable sculptures than fashion. She wanted to stay at Parsons, but she began exploring other departments. The day she walked into the glass studio and saw molten glass for the first time, her search was over. "Glass is the most challenging and rewarding material I have ever encountered," says Jill. "You can’t bully it—you are perpetually persuading and coaxing the glass into shape. Even the best living master glass blowers cannot always get the glass to do what they want! It’s this feisty streak that keeps me enchanted."
