Jen Fuller

Posted by Doug Paradis on

Walking through the historical gardens of the

Pacific North West, we simultaneously hold

space for the past and our own present

moment. We can rest our hands on the same

foliage today that slept for hundreds of years in

the gardens of our grandmothers, our countries


and in the forests of our ancestors. Jen Fuller’s

kiln-formed glass leaves embody the

interconnectedness of history and humanity, of

nurture and nature. Each piece in this series is

originally sourced from a historical space,

molded in plaster, then tenderly recreated in

glass one layer of colored powder glass at a

time. Each Botanical honors the sacred roots of

the Garden; the intentional moments they were

hand picked and transformed into glass by the

artist; and the instant you felt your connection to

it all.


Portland based installation artist, Jen Fuller,

has been constructing ephemeral glass, steel,

and light experiences around the United States

for over 10 years. As a self-taught artist, Fuller

found her passion rooted in the traditional

techniques of kiln-

formed glass, Raku, and industrial welding. Her

art reflects the delicate vulnerability and eternal

interconnectedness of nature and humanity.

Fuller’s work has been commissioned by Metro

Regional Government, Ovation TV, Lan Su

Chinese Garden, OMSI, and private collectors

around the world.
