Jannie Ledard creates stained glass art and fused glass jewelry from her studio in Talent. She evolved from classical designs to her own abstract creations. These often take the form of fused glass mandalas, in which geode slices frequently enhance the designs. Jannie’s work appears in an art glass book featuring glass artists from around the world. You can see her work in various locations in Ashland.
“I am fascinated by the ethereal, translucent quality of glass. While clear glass provides clarity by reflecting and transmitting light, stained glass transforms light, revealing its texture, color and very
spirit. Glass offers endless opportunities to create with the elements of light, color, and texture. As I work with this medium, I find myself being led by invisible guidance toward a more transparent and authentic expression of my own feelings. It is my hope that viewers of my work will feel the same sense of excitement, joie de vivre, peace, serenity and beauty I feel as parts of me are revealed and unveiled during this artistic process.”
