The Design Team
My name is Jenny Chong
I PROUDLY produce an AUSTRALIAN Hand Made Original jewellery piece.
With a formal training in graphic art and oil painting some 20 years ago and with a sharp eye for detail and colour finish formalisation it has enabled me to move forward and continue my passion of working with glass as a medium. All of my jewellery pieces carry my distinguished trade mark colour placement.
Working with colour and glass is the ultimate rewarding challenge whether it is a jewellery piece or a lattice plate all of my work is an original one off design.
A huge highlight for me was an invitation to visit the United States of America in August 2013. I personally met the people responsible for the adaption from the NASA invention of dichroic glass turning it into a medium suitable for artistic ventures.
I also met and was given the opportunity to work alongside world renowned glass artist Tim Lazer whose work is only sold in galleries and museums throughout America and Europe. The Glass Castle exclusively sold Tim’s hand blown glass vases and ornaments.
As at 30th October 2016 the showroom in Gallery Walk closed its doors so I could relocate to Melbourne. Today my jewellery is exclusively available through my web site visit www.theglasscastle.com.au and log onto ONLINE STORE
The Making Of The Scarecrow
Jenny in her workshop making the 170cm tall, 60 plus kilo MOSAIC SCARECROW which was a permanent Gallery Walk attraction and a perfect photo stop opportunity. Every piece of glass was cut by hand, paying particular attention to details such as the petals on the flowers or the detail on the butterfly wings before being fired in a kiln and then repositioned and mounted on toughened double sided hand crafted glass. We were situated at the TOP end of Gallery Walk opposite CASTLE GLEN LIQUEURS until 30th October, 2016. The showroom was closed so I could relocate my design and making of jewellery to Melbourne. I can be contacted firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my ONLINE store and buy from me online visit www.theglasscastle.com.au
P.s. The scarecrow now has a new home - Jenny donated him to a local school on Tamborine Mountain.
