I have been a potter for nearly 30 years, mainly working with white earthenware. Mostly my work is thrown and pierced. Having 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. My journey into glass has reinvigoured my interest in ceramics and have enjoyed casting with my new found skills in mould making.
I have worked on several commissions in glass and have enjoyed the collaboration and working with the client to achieve a unique piece of art.
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 was honoured to be invited to exhibit in Breaking The Mould exhibition at Peter Layton's very prestigious gallery at London Glassblowing Gallery from 28th September - 20th October.
In glass I specialise in Glass Casting - creating complex and unique pieces - sometimes as a series or one off pieces and special commissions.
In Ceramics I am drawn to interesting form and design. I produce a range of Pierced Ware Ceramics and also enjoy casting and have produced a range of white earthenware cast boxes - using contemporary designs taking inspirations from the past and adding my own twist.
Having recently moved to a village near Oundle, Northamptonshire, I now have a studio where I offer one to one classes for either glass or ceramics - specifically tailored to your skill and need. Please contact me to find out more.
