I produce kiln formed glass vessels, scent bottles, bowls and objet using the lost wax process, pate-de-verre and fusing.
I am particularly specialise in core casting which creates complex and interesting interiors. I use the Pate de verre (glass paste) technique to create intricate relief patterns and designs.
I enjoy making complex pieces and take my inspirations from ancient glass and ceramic techniques, from art nouveau artists through to present day contemporary arts and artists, adding my own twist.
I have been a potter for nearly 30 years, then stumbled across glass fusing about nine years ago. I was thrilled that I could make glass object in my kiln. I attended Richmond Adult Community College to find out more about glass world. I was fortunate to have Max Jacquard and then Angela Thwaites, both renowned glass artists, as my tutors. I knew from the first introduction to glass that casting and pate-de-verre were the techniques I wanted to work in.
I have exhibited with Just Glass at Orleans House, Twickenham 2014 & 2018 and Pitzhanger, Ealing 2016.
I have been selected for the International Glass Biennale at Stourbridge 2015 & 2018.
I will be exhibiting at Peter Layton's London Glassblowing Gallery from 28th September - 20th October - please see New Events for details.
