Catrin Jones is an award-winning artist specialising in decorative glass for architecture. Although Catrin works throughout the UK, her work in Swansea includes a pair of windows in St. Mary’s Church celebrating the Royal Wedding in 1982, the Stephanie MacLeod memorial window in Taliesin Arts Centre, the entrance window in Llwynderw School, and a memorial window in St. Joseph’s Cathedral.
This year the glass studio will not be open but Catrin will exhibit a collection of paintings and drawings. This will be a rare chance to see the source material used as inspiration for her designs in glass.
Menna Jones is a recent graduate of the Birmingham School of Jewellery, where she specialised in computer-aided design. Her work includes a commission to design and manufacture the medals for the IAAF indoor games in Birmingham, as well as bespoke items of jewellery for celebratory events. Her recent collection of contemporary silver jewellery, inspired by her native Gower landscape and its minutiae, will be on display during Open Studios, together with some hand-worked silver pieces.
