WelcoJane in studiome to Abundant Glass

Abundant Glass is the home of contemporary fused glass art and gifts handmade in the Pennines by Jane O’Neill.

I am a designer and maker based in the Pennine town of Hebden Bridge.  I am a keen cyclist, who loves exploring the local countryside and towns on my bike from where I take my inspiration.

'cyclist on hill' sculptureDelighted by the announcement that the Tour de France was coming to Yorkshire in 2014, I began to explore ways of representing this momentous event in my glass work.  This led to the development of my quirky illustrations of cyclists racing on the Tour de France route and my ‘cyclist on the hill’ sculptures.  whitby coasters This collection was featured on BBC’s Country File in June 2014.  Since then I have continued to illustrate cycle rides including  the Tour of Yorkshire , Tour of Britain and Eroica Britannia.
I have worked with glass since 2009 and have developed my own unique style creating sculptural pieces of work including my flowers, birds, Pennine houses and rainbow collections.

A selection of my work can be viewed in galleries and shops across the UK and in my online shop.  I also run a of fused glass courses and workshops – a brilliant opportunity to try your hand at making your own unique glass art. (I will not be running any workshops until Spring at the earliest)
