Jenny Walsh

Jenny Walsh is a glass artist who uses glass in combination with other materials to explore the interface between art, science and technology, examining both the role of glass in scientific discoveries, as well as using glass to convey scientific concepts. She often collaborates with scientists, believing that working in a cross-disciplinary environment opens up new perspectives and encourages a broader audience to engage in science.

Jenny Walsh has recently been investigating the role glass has played in the re-stimulation of neural pathways. Through extensive experimentation in glass and copper, which are used in some electrical interfaces, Walsh has adapted and refined traditional glass techniques to create a series of free-standing glass sculptures that reflect the neuron form; the basic building blocks of the nervous system.
