Details about work or recent projects

Combining hand glassblowing and hand painting (high firing enamels) skills to create one-off pieces of art glass. Private commissions are what interest me as I am quite fond of telling a story that is capable of capturing memories and moments in time. Functional/sculptural, figurative/representational/abstract - more often than not infused with elements of humour.
