Hi I'm Jade, the one breaking all this glass
A BIPOC artist based on Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest

I began working with stained glass in 2018 through the process of teaching myself traditional leadilghting methods, copper foil techniques, as well as repair & restoration practices via online videos, and earlier-era blog post. Having just started showing & selling my work at local BC based galleries in 2021 I've created this website to be more accesible to those both near and far that may not have the ability to see my work in person.

Though I say I am self taught, where I'm at comes with bigest thanks to the wisdom I've recieved from various artists, all at different places and stages in their relationships with glass. The stream of knowledge that comes with learning this craft is deep, and I intend to keep filling my cup.
