Winter Boundary
This is based on my garden stream which is the England/Wales boundary. The pebbles within travel through the seasons.

ARTIST Adviser Moderator

I trained as a fine artist, painting in ceramics, and have taught art ceramics and 3D for 30 years. I have just completed an MA in glass at the university of Wolverhampton and I have my own studio at home.

Details about work or recent projects

My work is based on the glimpsed, partly seen world which we pass unnoticed.. I like to combine kilncast glass with other natural materials, exploring the qualities and contrasts of each one. I also create unique glass jewellery and beads echoing this theme.
