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.

LOVED IT!!!

Received the vase yesterday and again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for getting it done so quickly! It is absolutely GORGEOUS and many of the pics on it are from my sister's and her new husband's "honeymoon" trip to 4 national parks and over 5,000 miles they traveled in 12 days, so it will be extra wonderful and special for them. I plan on adding a large bouquet of red roses to the vase and present it to her at a brunch she is hosting on Saturday before the wedding reception. She said no presents, but when I saw the vase, I couldn't resist. Again, THANK YOU so much for such a wonderful and treasured keepsake! :)

My favorite gift I've ever bought someone

Got this for my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary and put pictures ranging from 1986 to last year (including their engagement photos, wedding photos, special memories). They were so overjoyed that we took the time to personalize the gift to that extent. Normally I wouldn't spend quite this much money on a gift, but it's worth it. They will treasure this vase for years to come. A great gift for someone "who already has everything".

I bought this for my parents' 35th anniversary. They absolutely loved it. I filled the vase with glass gems and put yellow silk flowers sticking out the top of the vase. (Their wedding had yellow in it 35 years ago.) I'm adding a picture, but it looks MUCH better in person.

Love this vase. It was for my nieces wedding shower. She's loved it and I had many guests ask where I bought it. The artist who makes them was wonderful and contacted me immediately when j had a question we put flowers in it but I would also put a luminariia candle in it .

Great gift idea for grandparents

This was a gift to our parents with images of our kids throughout the year. Jenny was very available by email to answer our questions and work with on the organization of pictures (we used one large collage image with five images within it). It was also very convenient to have the vase sent directly to our mother as she lives in a different state. While we have not personally seen the vase, our mother loves it and placed an LED-type candle in it.

I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband and it was such a hit! We still have yet to make our wedding photo album so its really nice to have a keepsake displayed of our beautiful memories of our wedding day. The artist was easy to work with and I was pleased with the result.
