I have been independently exploring the parameters of kiln formed glass since 2012 and create functional, decorative and sculptural works.

I get my inspiration from my surroundings and indeed from the glass itself. I am fascinated by the way this material behaves at different temperatures, be it in sheet frit or powdered form, and like to experiment with various combinations of size, thickness and temperature, exploring colour, opacity and texture. This interaction of creativity with science, often exploiting chance whilst still maintaining control, makes glass such a magical medium to work with. Consequently, each of my pieces is totally unique!

I have been fortunate enough to have my work selected for several juried Open Art Exhibitions in London and the South West including the RSMA, the RBA and the RWA. I also invite people to view my work during Hampshire Open Studios.
