Jennifer Caldwell

Jennifer Caldwell, AKA Umphress, has spent most her life near the coast in California and Hawaii. She is a full time artist and her primary technical focus is solid sculpting borosilicate glass using a torch. Responding to the fluidness of the material, she has mastered capturing the movement and gracefulness of sea life forms. The use of recognizable imagery allows the viewer to relate and get lost if even just a moment at sea. Narratively her work is a form of therapy that responds to the daily life of being a mother, traveling and experiencing new people and places. Her studio is located in Kingston, WA.

Caldwell has taught workshops worldwide including Japan, Amsterdam and the United Kingdom. She has also taught at the most reputable schools in the United States including Corning Studio, Penland School of Crafts, Pilchuck Glass School and Pittsburgh Glass Center. Her work has been exhibited at SOFA and is currently represented by various galleries.
