Jennifer Caldwell

"Glass to me is the ideal medium because it has it all: color, dimension, clarity, and reflection. This medium enables me to express my thoughts and feelings in the moment."

Jennifer Caldwell's vast inspiration from the ocean, which she has lived near and loved all her life. Intrigued by the challenge of capturing motion in glass, she strives to emulate the movement of sea life in her work.

Caldwell creates her pieces using the lampworking technique. She has worked with cold glass and other techniques besides lampworking, but once she discovered the rush of creating with constant motion that lampworking offers, she was completely captivated.

Caldwell (aka Jennifer Umphress) began her glass career in 2000 as an apprentice in a small studio retail shop. She has since studied glass in an apprenticeship in Murano, Italy, a residency at Pilchuck School of Glass, and in workshops across the country. She has also had opportunities to teach and show her work internationally. In 2009, she was given the Glasscraft Emerging Artist Award, and in 2010 she was given the Rosen Group's NICHE Award in the category of lampworked glass. She currently lives in Kingston, Washington.
