I take my inspiration from the natural world to produce simple and beautiful designs, flowers, trees and oceans are all captured in my work. I am drawn more to 3D sculptural pieces as I enjoy the challenge of making something unique and the opportunity it offers to learn more about glass fusing as I go.
For my last ‘fun’ creation, the Poppy vitigraph bowl, I repurposed a small kiln to pull vitigraph and built up the bowl in layers with hand cut poppies to give it strength.
My current work involves making reusable casting moulds of leaves which when cast can then be incorporated into my work.
