Meet Jannie Ledard, Glass Artist

Hi, I'm Jannie! Click here to visit my Contact page.

Jannie Ledard's glass art studio is located in Talent, Oregon, where she creates fused glass jewelry and stained glass windows and art objects including glass mandalas, suncatchers, and more. Jannie was born and raised in the beautiful town of Rouen, France, known for Monet's paintings of its cathedral and cradle of writers Pierre Corneille and Gustave Flaubert. After graduating from the University of Rouen, she started a teaching career in France, then teaching in Martinique, New York City and San Francisco. She retired from teaching in Berkeley, California.

Her friend Duane Sample, a mosaic artist, opened the doors of the luminous world of glass art to her. She then studied the techniques of stained glass with John Peterson in Santa Barbara and attended many workshops. When Duane offered her a kiln, she discovered the multi-faceted realm of fusing and kiln-forming which brought a new dimension to her art. She now enjoys challenging herself with new experimentations and techniques of making glass into extraordinary art objects to accent your home or office decor.

Jannie attends numerous Southern Oregon art shows and exhibits in many galleries and special events. Please scroll down to see her current schedule!


About Jannie's Work

Stained Glass

Jannie uses either lead or copper foil technique to create her stained glass art, depending on the size of her design. Her unique work ranges from mandalas and lampshades to window and home decor. She evolved from classical designs into her own more abstract creations, working lately with the amazing agates, so rich in various earthy colors and inclusions. The pieces displayed here are a small selection of what she has available now - please visit the Stained Glass gallery to browse selected pieces from her collection of stained glass art.


Warm Glass

The vivid, luminescent colors of Jannie's bold fused glass jewelry are achieved by combining layers of dichroic and/or compatible glass. The jewelry is fused at 1400 to 1465 degrees and carefully annealed for lasting strength and durability. Each piece is one of a kind. Jannie is presently developing advanced fusing techniques which will allow her to combine stained glass artistry with her warm glass creations.
