Depicting the moment when the stormy sea becomes miraculously calm,
this window is about peace beyond understanding.
Feature window for the Prayer Room at St Bede’s RC High School in Blackburn
mold melted glass,partly polished,acid etched
Kiln-formed glass wall panel designed to showcase a relationship between structure, space and shape.
Inspiration comes from the composition of line and colour found in abstract expressionism and from the visionary designs of the late architect Zaha Hadid.

and the formation of a rainbow etc.
Fused glass panels with an oak leaf motif emblematic of the native trees in the
mountain region behind Barcelona. The client requested a subtle light source to complement
the cave-like interior of the restaurant.
The design was inspired by the North Cornish coast line and the colours of the land and sea scapes of the area.
Location: Rock, Cornwall, UK.
This sample was made for the 2016 Stevens Competition. The window at St Mary's Southampton is designed to be a memorial to the 550 southampton crew lost in the Titanic Disaster. All 550 names appear in the design. The bird and the man are symbols of hope, and loss, and are shown on one of the lifeboats. The lifeboat design is taken directly from the original blueprint for the Titanic lifeboats.
The commission was undertaken for a private new build house in Swansea. The Client requested the theme of butterflies. The glass was worked by sandblasting and silver stain. The majority of the glass is English Antique, chosen for its rich colouring and irregular surface thus creating interesting light play. Lambert’s glass makes up about 20% of the Windows. The Windows are situated above and to each side of the main front door to the house, facing a boundary wall hence the choice of colours. The work is double glazed.
Bullseye glass in layers with inclusions and studio made frit
Each panel is 60 x 20 cms
Aluminium fixings - artists own design

The brief was to use imagery to tell the story of the Parable of the Sower with the actual church engraved in the background. The Sower was to be enigmatic as He is often depicted as Christ himself. The design needed to give privacy to the upper room above a new vestry so had to cover a lot of glass. The LED lighting helps with privacy and enhances the 3D effects of the quite deep intaglio engraving.
This piece has been incorporated into a kitchen design to create a splash back to a cooker hob.
Description:The brief for this commission was to highlight the 2012 Olympic games.
I chose to show a pole vaulter because it is aspirational - one can reach the highesrt heights if you try!
A window commissioned for Horsleygate Hall in Holmesfield, Derbyshire.
