I studied at Ravensbourne, then at Leicester where I first blew glass. A lifetime later, I find I’m again working with glass. Mostly I’m fusing, sometimes to make pictures, sometimes slumping, often something else entirely. I'm exploring and learning, surprised and delighted with glass, and always finding something new.

Details about work or recent projects

I made the glass flowers in this unusual bouquet.

I've been collaborating with Julie Shorter maker of "forever bouquets", wedding bouquets made to last.

So if you know someone who is getting married and is looking for a unique and personalised bouquet please get in touch.
