WelcoJane in studiome to Abundant Glass

Featured in Living North Magazine May 2015

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' sculptureI have worked with glass since 2009 and have developed my own unique style creating sculptural pieces of work including my Pennine houses, and rainbow collection.

Delighted 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.  This collection was featured on BBC’s Country File in June 2014.  Since then I have continued to illustrate cycle rides including Tour of Yorkshire 2015, Tour of Britain and Eroica Britannia.
