I trained in traditional leaded work at Reigate College, and have had many commissions for private houses, hotels and churches. In the nineties I invested in a fusing kiln and experimented with various techniques. I still carry out lead work in the quieter months but most work now is based around the kiln. I include something experimental in most firings!

Most recent lead work was two windows in a Cornish church, next to three by William Morris… No pressure! I am presently involved with a community project beach shelter in Scilly, using tansfer- illustrated fused glass in sapele frame.
New studio work includes mini leaded panels and even smaller fused glass framed “postcards.”
