Jinya’s work spans sculpture, installation and design. In her current collection she has created a body of new work, using different glass qualities in order to explore the subtle relationships and tensions between colour, form and structure.
Her intention is to playfully explore how glass can affect the viewers perception of reality and to engender emotional responses.
To this end Jinya aims to evoke the ‘non-existent existence’.

For this playful collection, Jinya uses opaque and transparent layered blown glass to deliberately obscure the interior of the specific enigmatic forms. This creates a paradoxical interpretation of what is interior or exterior.
In the creation of this group of work, ahe used the hand-blowing method; the two cylinders in one piece perfectly match each other - this was one of the most pressing challenges in this work.
