I am 53 and have been lamp working borosilicate glass for 30 years. Developing techniques to work solid glass to an unusually large scale and definition. Fascinated by the fluidity with change in temperature of the glass and changes in light reflecting within adds to the magical qualities, giving an ethereal feel to my creations.
Nature, myth an magic have always been central to my work and Dragons are still my signature pieces. I sometimes utilise pre-made lamps to form my sculptures around and also natural crystals and wood. My miniature fairies 'Twinkles' are a favorite and I also design and make sculptural jewellery and torcs.
In more recent years I have been teaching one to one classes to pass on some of my techniques.
