Fabric and Glass by Vanessa Yanow

Vanessa Yanow is a textile and glass designer/artist, jeweler, painter, and multimedia sculptor based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In her most recent pieces she weaves the present into the past with assemblages made from repurposed vintage fabrics and flame-worked glass components. Yanow also makes a line of whimsical necklaces fashioned from zippers, blown glass, and found objects.
