I adore glass. For me, it is the most magical of media; a single substance so versatile and so flexible that it can be transparent, coloured, opaque, stained, painted, fused, slumped, blown, cast, cut and polished. We've been making it for over 5,000 years and yet it is still surprising us. I believe that British glass and artists are the finest in the world and that joining the CGS Committee is my small way of supporting the community that gives me so much.
