I am a studio glass practitioner, originating from Northumberland. I completed a B.A(Hons) in 3 dimensional design at Manchester University in 1999 and I have established a studio practice working with kiln formed glass using both fusing and casting processes. My practice involves participating in contemporary glass exhibitions throughout the U.K.My work sells through galleries in both England and Scotland. Commissions include private, domestic and corporate clients.
My work is an assemblage of individual materials making a display of hangings and sculptural forms which involve the use of flat panels and imagery inspired from my exploration of symbolism and nature. I use metals and specialist processes which I have developed in casting to produce sculpture which retain the qualities of the glass and ghosting within the seams of the glass.
