Julie Conway, glass artist & lighting designer, is the founding owner of ILLUMINATA ART GLASS DESIGN LLC, a custom glassworks studio offering bespoke, luxurious custom lighting & sculptural art glass installations from residential lighting, to large-scale hospitality architectural illumination projects.
Passionate & creative collaboration with global architects, designers & clients results in extraordinary hand-made, illuminated glassworks. Julie’s spontaneous & elegant designs amplify molten glass and its properties to refract & reflect light.
Julie’s years of apprenticeship with international glass masters forged her dedicated studio practice using traditional glass techniques infused with a modern design aesthetic. The talented team of ILLUMINATA brings years of expertise to each hand-crafted piece, to create this unique collection of exquisite lighting. All glassworks are signed by the artist & part of the original ILLUMINATA collection.
Julie is also the founder of BioGlass.org, dedicated to the development of renewable and bio-sustainable fuel sources to produce glass, thereby helping to protect the environment and the future existence of glass arts.
The readymade design series includes eco-friendly recycled glass lighting, textiles, and other decor items to the public and trade. LUMi Collection is customizable, in stock and can be ordered on demand.
“Illuminata” the name of Julie’s studio, stems from the Italian Renaissance group of thinkers and artists who expanded consciousness and brought enlightenment to the public. Sparkle on!
