I have been engraving glass for over 20 years and it has been my main professional activity for the last 15. I was elected a Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 2000. I work both to commission and for exhibitions.

Details about work or recent projects

I take commissions on a scale from goblets and tankards to doors and windows. Commissions often include lettering but can also include illustrative elements. Colour can be included by fusing or using a collage technique. My exhibition pieces often combine kiln forming and sculptural engraving.
