Chris Bird-Jones is a Swansea based artist, working primarily with glass. She studied stained glass at Swansea School of Art, followed by an MA at the Royal College of Art.
Her work ranges from education, architectural commission to her own artistic practice. In this, she is fascinated by the phenomenal nuances of refracted light and shadow when glass is juxtaposed with sunlight. attempts to harness this playful transience in her work. Often returning to particular themes, forms and metaphors, her work employs hot and cold glass techniques to realise concepts.
Bird-Jones was Head of Glass at Wrexham University and Wolverhampton University, was a Creative Wales Ambassador in 2015 and is part of the Women’s International Glass Workshop.
