I live in the Lake District fusing glass inspired by the landscape but with an Art Deco twist. The Bloomsbury Group of Artists & the Canadian Group of 7 also influence me.
Rivers are my recent fascination using iridescent colours, aspiring to replicate their fluidity of movement & the reflection of light on water.
My variety of work includes a trophy for the Irish Ballooning Club, glassware for the award winning Old Stamp House Restaurant & other works being both decorative & functional.
Having studied Architectural Satined Glass at Swansea I have also been experimenting with kiln formed glass and love to combine the two disciplines
I love the challenge of designing for different buildings, interiors and people, whether a large architectural piece or an intensely personal small piece
Working with kiln-fired glass is both rewarding and challenging. The process is quite physical in that it involves measuring, cutting, grinding and firing and this, coupled with the unpredictability of the final outcome, is what makes it such an appealing and absorbing activity.
