    Join us for lunch as we hear the story of Jeremie Draper with JDraper Glass, LLC. 

    Artist Statement
    Glass is the dance in still life. Capturing this moment of vitality, an instant of inspiration and epiphany; marrying it with the delicate skill of blowing glass, result in a still piece—fluid, and somehow moving. Since I learned to hand blow glass, I have been enthralled with the amorphous nature of the medium; its potential to breathe and flow with the rhythms of the artist.

    Under the tutelage of Che`Rhodes, Jeremie became a passionate student of glass, curious about the most primitive processes of Roman & Egyptian forms and honoring the great traditions of Italian color decoration. Her influences are Lino Tagliapietra, Stanislav Libensky and Jaroslave Brychotva, Fritz Dreisbach, William Gudenrath, Mary Schaffer, William Morris, Andy Goldsworthy and Javacheff Christo.  A central Illinois native, Jeremie received her B.F.A. in Glass from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2002. She was a Rickert-Ziebold winner in spring ’02. She had the privilege to travel and work with other glass blowers in Oregon & Washington before moving back to IL. Her studio, JDraper Glass LLC is now located at The Studios on Sheridan, located at the corner of Main & Sheridan. Jeremie’s entire collection can be viewed at her studio by appointment or any time at General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport Gift Shop,  Exhibit A Gallery and Peoria Riverfront Museum.
