Light, shadow and pattern are some of the themes Jane D'Arensbourg explores in her work. Glass is a material she uses as a vehicle to capture light, energy, and fragility. There is a time in the day in her studio when the sun pours in and everything comes to life as sunlight slowly travels around the studio, casting beams of light through all of the glass sculptures, jewelry, lighting, and experiments. The shadow cast on surfaces is this energy broken up into patterns, which can be used as a vehicle for meditation by the viewer.
Jane D'Arensbourg views her jewelry and lighting work as functional art. A ring can function as a sculptural object sitting in your home, waiting to be worn and experienced in another way.
