I have been working with glass for five years, concentrating on garden sculptures. My training has been at Stanton Guildhouse, Glostershire. I am now retired and have set up my own studio with kiln in Somerset. Other intrests are printing ,and I would like to combine the two activities in my future works.
The need to make things has always been with me, like a shadow, always present but not always apparent. I now use glass in its many different forms as the main material to express my personal creative vision; the resultant pieces exist somewhere along a fluid boundary between fine art and craft.
