I am a glassmaker and designer inspired by the fells, lakes and coastline of rural Cumbria. Fusing glass is a creative process that takes advantage of fluidity of the glass when influenced by heat and gravity. A move to the Lake District and its ever changing light gave me the impetus to start working with the rainbow of colours that can be created when fusing glass. The Michelin Star Old Stamp House in Ambleside commissioned me to make functional platters and decorative pieces for their restaurant. Also, Ingo Stubner, prestigious architect from Brampton, asked me to design and make a complicated Nebula (from outer space) as a gift for a friend, also an architect, whose current project is the underground museum at Stonehenge. Exhibitions include Pyramid Gallery, York, Farfield Mill, Sedbergh, Arteria, Lancaster, World of Glass, St Helens and Accrington Art Gallery alongside the largest Tiffany Glass collection outside America.
