My workshop, which was previously a blacksmith forge is located on Eel pie island in Twickenham where I have worked since 2007. Casting glass involves many processes from making silicone rubber moulds to cutting grinding and polishing the finished castings. Refractory moulds are made from clay, plaster and wax models (also known as the lost wax process). Using these techniques I undertake commissioned work as well as continually developing my own work for exhibitions.

Taking inspiration from celestial bodies and the natural world, I use colour and geometry to achieve effects that are subtle, harmonious and sometimes mysterious. My love of nature opens doors to new ideas and continued experimentation. Selected colour combinations are used in conjunction with geometry. My current work uses techniques and skills developed over many years with some pieces requiring up to 5 kiln firings.
