John Aubry  
Glass Artist and Jeweller  
 I live in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, with my wife Nicky. 

Our studio overlooks the Forest which is a constant inspiration.

 I started working with glass in 2000 following a course in glass 
design and techniques at Gloscat. 

Glass is an exciting and challenging medium that I enjoy exploring either by use of a kiln to fuse, slump and shape glass or by traditional leading, to produce my unique glass designs. 
My work encompasses both traditional and abstract styles.

My style evolves as I explore new ideas, inspirations and techniques.

The joy of working with glass is pushing the boundaries of experience.  This sometimes leads to disasters but more often I am excited by the magic that takes place within the kiln. 

My work is tactile, colourful and sometimes quirky. Whilst I prefer kiln work I also design, make and repair stained glass windows both traditional and modern.

I have now combined my skills in glass and silver working to make enamel jewellery in a simple modern style.
