Born and raised just outside Boston, Massachusetts, Jill Henrietta Davis began her career in glass at the New York Experimental Glass Workshop while studying at the Parsons School of Design. Upon completion of her BFA in 1991 she became the first Parsons student to earn a degree with a specialization in glass.
In 2003, after 15 years of making one-of-a-kind artworks in glass, Jill undertook a new challenge by founding Henrietta Glass, a limited production studio. Born from the idea that it is even harder to design a really great piece of glass that can be readily reproduced than a really great one-of-a-kind, Henrietta Glass strives to bring excellent design and craftsmanship to audiences outside the limited world of fine art galleries. With smart design, contemporary colors and a sense of humor, Henrietta Glass seeks to add art to the home, office or gift giving.
