Work of Heart

A favorite character scrawled in crayon. An everyday scene mushed in generous gobs of finger-paint. An adorably honest portrayal of mommy, daddy, baby siblings, and the family pet in multi-colored markers. Even if a child grows up to be the next Picasso, it is these primitive artworks that parents treasure above all. Just a glance at these meandering musings lovingly crafted by little messy hands can bring parents back in time to those early years that flit by all too quickly.

Rather than boxing these wistful pieces up in the attic and far from sight, you can frame a snapshot of your child's first forays into the world of art with this timeless vase by artist Jenny Gaynor. The artist captures your most memorable masterpieces in sleek glass through a complex photo transfer process, wherein an actual picture of your child's work is replicated in full color. After she transfers the artwork, she fires this one-of-a-kind image in a kiln to preserve that moment in your little artist's life for decades to come. A heartwarming keepsake for parents and grandparents to proudly exhibit and adore. Handmade in Los Angeles.

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.
