I use flame working techniques to create figurative glass sculptures and one off sculptural pieces in soft glass. For a number of years I have created largely imaginary forms, which often seek to capture the feeling of the female figure in movement. I have now returned to life drawing to further explore and enhance this aspect of my figurative sculptural practice

Inspired by a visit to the Alfred Munnings Museum in Dedham Vale in the Summer of 2023 I began experimenting with an enhanced palette of greens, pinks and blues. I created a number of small number brightly coloured flameworked hummingbirds, which led to the idea of the shimmering bowl. Hundreds of small wing like flame worked pieces, were lightly tack fused together before being slumped in the kiln.
