About My Work:

Natural forms and the human ideas which surround them are my main inspiration; recently my focus has been the impact of environmental change on the beautiful Slad Valley, in Gloucestershire, where I live and work. My vessels, wall pieces and sculptures are made by cutting and collaging glass elements to be fused and shaped at high temperature in the kiln. Colour and texture are added using enamels, coloured frit (crushed glass), dichroic glass and sandblast. Detail may be added using an engraving drill.
