As a jeweller with interior intent, my work is often a collaboration of both skills as a glass artist and a jeweller, with a conceptual twist. Whilst other jewellers look to the body, my interest lies with the social history of jewellery whilst off the body. It is the very notion of where jewellery lives, where it is hidden for most of its life and what we percieve as 'precious' that intrigues me.
Celebrating and integrating elements of jewellery within pieces of art glass, such as the dressing table sets of my 'Precious Integrations' series fulfills my roles as both jeweller and glass artist. I believe a house profits from adornment as synonymously as the body.
Working in glass and metals, I continue to push the boundaries of material compatability within my glass work.

Sculpture, installation and performance exploring connection and disconnection.Current projects develop flameworked sculpture as catalyst for action, inter-action, and social inclusion. My work provides innovative methods of involving new audiences, in exciting, yet relatable ways. Interactive performances provide a compelling environment that allows the public new ways of expressing their deepest selves in private moments with innovative group aesthetic outcomes.

Austyn Finnegan 2013

Austyn Finnegan is glass student from Northern Ireland. He is a recent B.A. Hons Graduate of Glass Sculpture and Architectural Glass at Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland.

He decided to pursue the medium of glass in 2009 when researching Andy Goldsworthy’s Ice sculptures for a 3D project, and in seeing this wanted to create his own works but in a permanent form. Glass making was sourced as a medium in whiich to translate this and he has been passonate about this way of making ever since.

His work is influenced by natural, human interaction and emotion and how it shapes the world around us. The reasons he likes to work with glass is because of the versatile properties of the material. It seems to be able to capture ephemeral and fleeting aspects that he tries to highlight in his conceptual thinking.

Deirdre Finnerty is a contemporary glass artist from Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland and is currently studying an MA in Glass at the Swansea School of Glass, Swansea Metropolitan University. Previous to this, she completed a BA (Hons) degree in Architectural Glass in 2011 with a first class honours at the same school. She won third prize at the ‘Games’ exhibition in association with the British Society of Master Glass Painters and hosted by the Swansea School of Glass and she has exhibited work both nationally and internationally.
