PURE GLASS

Always enjoyed being creative, I decided on retirement to do something really exciting. Enrolled to a 1 year Glass Technique Diploma course 2010 and found I loved it, now I am happy working in my studio.
The transparency of the glass creating surprising effects with natural lights inspires me. The glass magnifies or distorts images and puts them into a dreamlike state. The childlike effect glass has on me is infectious and boundaries are always stretched by me and glass artists that makes the whole industry fascinating. I love to cross pollinate between kilnformed glass and the hotshop.
