I have been engraving glass for over 25 years and it has been my main professional activity for the last 20. I was elected a Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 2000. I work both to commission and for exhibitions.

Details about work or recent projects

My exhibition pieces often combine kiln forming and sculptural engraving, the glass being carved with diamond and stone tools, often right through.

I take commissions on a scale from goblets and tankards to doors and windows. Commissions often include lettering but can also include illustrative elements. Colour can be included by fusing or using a collage technique.
