I am primarily inspired by colour and the concept of light on colours. Through my work, I explore combinations of colours, shades and tones using a variety of medium. In fact it is the variety of techniques, materials and tools with which that interest me. I work with enamels and metals to create unique pieces of jewellery and figures. I work with wool to create felted pictures. I work with glass to create leaded and copper foil stained glass pictures and sun catchers.
I I am a Glass Artist based in Rural Herefordshire. After gaining a B A (Hons) degree in Contemporary Applied Arts at Hereford College of the Arts, I now specialise in creating high-end bespoke glass products using handmade glass. Inspiration for my work is drawn from the natural coastal habitat whilst holidaying, mainly in Wales, Devon and Cornwall. The erosion of sea formed pebbles, patterns of the sea surf, and the transparency created by glass like water covering the innumerable rock pools. My creations are widely recognised as having a unique, distinctive style, creating texture and layers drawn from personal stimulating photographic images. Many items have the inclusion of my own photographic decals fired into the glass, then slumped into handmade moulds created from the pebbles collected while exploring the seashore. Items I make include – Wall panels, Garden panels, Electric free standing or Wall lights, Tea light ‘wave’ shades, Jewellery, Dishes and Coasters. Commissions taken – I can create something just for you to suit your individual requirements..
