"Creating colourful, multi-layered, textured and marvellously modern glass..."

My work explores things that might be considered inconsequential, unattractive or even disturbing at first sight: Such diverse subjects as microscopic bacteria or urban debris might provide the inspiration for my abstract, sensual glasswork. Through a process of deconstruction, I reveal the beauty that lies in unexpected places, and this becomes the focus of my finished pieces. As a result, my work is often aesthetically appealing, yet it always retains traces of its origins. I aim to beguile, intrigue and occasionally unsettle the viewer, taking them back through my creative process so they too can find fascination in things they might otherwise ignore.
Colourful and contemporary, my glass pieces are produced using a range of different techniques and materials, which are often selected to reflect and complement the subject matter. Most are kiln-worked, and I often use a combination of other processes, such as screen-printing, painting and etching to achieve specific effects.
Studio visits are welcome.
After determining the nature of the commission (ie location, size, colours, potential subject matter and installation requirements, I produce an estimate of cost and timescale for the piece. If agreed, I then produce design drawings and samples. The final stage is the creation and installation of the finished piece. Several site visits may be required, especially for larger pieces.
Prices of commissioned work will vary according to size, materials, processes and design time required to create the piece, as well as installation requirements. Detailed quotes will be provided for specific commissions.
