Stained glass designer/maker

I am a designer and maker of decorative architectural stained glass for windows, doors, free hanging panels, wallpieces and large mirrors. I use many of the traditional techniques practised by stained glass artists over the centuries, to create work which is highly contemporary. I specialise in using decorative techniques in my work, including sandblasting, gilding, plating, false leading, kiln-fired paints and stains.

Details about work or recent projects

I mainly work to commission for the domestic and corporate markets. Commissions include windows, doors, free-hanging panels, wallpieces and large mirrors. My aim is to create pieces which will make the most of available light, exploit the natural beauty of the glass and remain a source of interest to the client for years to come.

I also teach beginners to advanced courses at my studio, West Dean College (near Chichester) and Flatford Mill (Suffolk).
