One of a Kind Necklace by Irene Jalowayski 

Irene’s jewelry pieces are distinctive.

Her wearable art pieces include one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, and cuff bracelets.  

Each object is truly unique, not only due to the glass work, but because she understands the wearer’s need to own a singular adornment.

 

 

 

“Fly Away” by Irene Jalowayski

 

“Fly Away” is cast glass on metal.  The metallic background is a tree of life. 

The three large cast glass feathers are surrounded by cast glass hummingbirds, glass leaves and flowers.

 

 

Irene’s increasingly detailed process as a glass artist shows the degree to which she has pushed herself to stretch boundaries, and in glass work, that is challenging!  “Fly Away” was featured at Continuum/Art Palm Beach 2019 and at the Cornell Museum at the Women in The Visual Arts exhibit “Celebrating 30 Artful Years”, where it won an honorable mention.  (That show was extremely competitive and accepted only 20 pieces).  Irene tells The Rickie Report, “To me it represents the beauty and freedom of nature and the desire to escape the humdrum of city life once in a while”.

 The viewer can feel the excitement of Irene’s creative process. Her personal glass collection in includes creations from the United States, Italy, and Sweden. Her inspiration comes from nature and her own imagination, as you will see with “Fly Away”.  The process of casting glass is complicated and more difficult than that of fused glass.  First, Irene makes a clay sculpture. Over the weeks that it takes to dry, she will continue to incise, brush, and assure that the mold is exact.  Then she casts the mold in plaster.  Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 450 degrees for 38 hours.  Once cooled, the mold is broken away from the glass, resulting in a solid piece of glass which will never be reproduced!

 

One of a kind Fused glass earrings, necklaces, and bracelets by Irene Jalowayski

 

Irene’s fused art glass pieces are filled with colorful dichroic glass mixed in bright, beautiful backgrounds. The viewer can feel the excitement of the creative process!  Her abstract sculptures will enhance any decor.  Irene’s functional art pieces include cast glass jewelry boxes, bowls, vases, plates of varying sizes, and small accent tables. Her Judaica array includes mezzuzahs, candle sticks, menorahs, matzah plates, and she offers to create a unique bowl using the shards of the glass which is broken during the wedding ceremony!

It’s only been 6 short years since Irene was featured as an emerging artist at ArtiGras. She studied with Sidney Escowitz and has taken classes with McMow Art Glass and Art Glass Environments, before becoming a teacher herself!  She never loses sight of the creative excitement when she open a kiln.  She shares that enthusiasm with her students.
