Glass Sculptor

I grew up in the south west of England, but am currently living and working in London. I graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2006 with an MA in ceramics and Glass. Prior to this I have gained experience through working with glassmakers Sally Fawkes, Colin Reid and Richard Jackson, and currently work along side Bruno Romamelli in his studio in south London.

Details about work or recent projects

At present I am working within a few areas. 'I produce gallery based sculptural work. Working using my 'lost ice process'.'Through a blurring of function and ornamentation, I create unique cast glass trinket shelves and ledges as lavish adornments for the interior.' And 'On a larger scale, responding to the structural aesthetics in contemporary architecture. I make bespoke cast glass girders as imitation beams for the modern age.'
