I have been working with kiln fired glass for about 5 years and enjoy making many different things. I have made foiled light catchers and leaded panels but prefer working with fused glass. I make table and home ware and some earrings and pendants but my real love is making landscape pictures in glass using powders and glass only. I use no paints at all as I think that is more true to the art.

Details about work or recent projects

Currently, I am working on a series of small landscapes referring to places I have visited within the UK. I like landscapes with water, sea, rivers or lakes together with rolling country so that the superb ability of glass to show perspective can be exploited.
