I am starting a BA in Contemporary Crafts at Plymouth College of Art in September 2011. My main area of interest is glass, although I'm excited about experiencing other aspects of craft. All aspects of glass making fascinates me and I am exploring the creative possibilities of glass. Glass is unique as it alters (and is altered by) light and manipulating this material changes its relationship with light.

Details about work or recent projects

I started out doing an adult education course in stained glass, and some of those pieces I have posted here, but I do intend to post some recent work when it is finished.
I am influenced by the world around me, the sculptural nature of architecture and the organic sculptures of landscapes; the occurrence of geometry in nature and life; photography and optical phenomena.
