Working with glss is how Jennier Kelly “lls her cu.” When she isn’t wtching thecurrent o the Mississii River ro herdeck or her dock or her windows, Kelly’s - vourite lce is in her studio, going with theow o cretivity the river insires. Fortu-ntely tht studio is well insulted, becuseshe loves to ccony her vourite vocl-ists t ull volue while she works.Glss hs lwys been her chosen ediu.She likens it to the river itsel — bending ndowing round obstcles, nd chnging ornd substnce constntly. On her website t<currentworksoglss.co> she writes: “Wtchingthe current in the river ow st y hoe givese gret joy. Tis eeling o oveent nd dreows through ost o y designs.”Jennier’s glss rt designs re s vried nd uids the river, rnging ro lrge sculturl ieces orthe grden to wll rt nd tble ieces. In her ownwords, “Te dnce o light nd glss is  reindero sunlight on wter. My work tends to ocus onotiis with  nod to the struggles o hunsnd nture... No two ieces re ever the se, sy cretivity coes ro y dirtion or theunique nd resh.”Tt cretivity extends to exerienttion withher ediu.

Going with the Flow
A ntive Ottwn, Jennier Kelly ttended Cr-leton University intending to study sychology.A wonderul Shkeserin course with Eliz-bethn scholr nd CBC Rdio eroring rtscritic Chrles Hines chnged her ind, nd sheollowed the ily ow — studying literture in-sted. Her dd is  retired journlist nd her sisteris  writer. Ater university the job rket ws in slu, nd she nd her other oened “Act 2,” consignent store in Knt. When they decidedto sell their second venture,  hoe design sho inBells Corners,  new current swet her wy. Teirrel estte broker convinced her to becoe  rel-tor, nd by 2010 Jennier nd her husbnd Ptrickshred the wrd o o Producing e or Sut-ton Grou Preier Rel Estte.Although she ws relly busy rising two kids ndselling rel estte, Kelly hd lwys loved rt nd wslooking or n outlet or her cretive energies. Whenshe took  course in stined glss in the erly '90s,she relized she hd ound her ediu nd decid-ed to go with the ow gin. Mking stined glssieces led to urther courses in glss rt t CorningGlss Studio, nd she hs enjoyed the exertise o severl renowned techers nd entors. Lst yershe exnded her reertoire with  course in glss jewellery t Ottw School o Art.o stisy her need or “instnt grtiction,”Kelly hs creted  substntil gllery o intrigu-ing glss jewellery. Fr ro instnt, the brcelets,endnts, rings nd errings re constructed rointricte blendings o unique glss coonents with etl set-tings. Tis is how she describes one beutiul iece: “I will issthis brcelet when it leves y studio. Te glss is so originl ndiossible to dulicte. It is  white bse used with n orgnic t-tern o red/rust/tel/grey. I use it in y kiln t high het to crete sooth surce like  river stone.

Navigating the Flow
Jennier enthusisticlly describes Ptrick s “the world’s ost su-ortive husbnd.” As her rel estte rtner, he enbles her to crveout chunks o tie to gure out how to “get wht’s in y igintiononto glss.” She hs three notebooks ull o concet drwings, nd isworking on  ten-yer rtistic develoent ln tht includes  trinext yer to n esteeed glss school in Pittsburgh, PA.
