Over the years Jackie's ever expanding field of influence include evolutionary biology, the structure of sound, sacred geometry, insect architecture, the arts & crafts movement, and Japanese prints.
All of these and more continue to influence her design process, which begins with drawing and can include wax carving, casting, constructing from sheet and wire, and kiln firing glass. It is complexity of process and technique seeking that place of quiet stillness and perfection in classic simplicity of form. The mindset is one of constant striving, always pushing forward beyond the comfort zone of the known; the results are what you see here.
Her work has received numerous awards including London's DeBeers Diamonds International and Tokyo's International Pearl Design Competition.
