Applied Arts (Glass) BA Graduate and Trainee Art and Design Teacher

I am an applied artist working mostly in glass as I love its transparency and versatility. I am a material process led maker and I love to experiment and learn new processes. I am currently focussed on kiln casting.
Music and the human form are key elements in my work which has developed through dance, movement, silhouettes and street art. 'Journeys' is a theme I am now focussed on which combines these elements.

Details about work or recent projects

I was recently involved with kiln casting dance panels from moulds I made after dancing the Red Hot Salsa Line Dance on a large slab of clay. I have also kiln cast a shoe, feet and shoe souls which combine with feet and foot prints. My theme is "Journeys" and this links my two projects together.
