My focus is on making cast glass sculptures that capture and contrast light through the use of various and multiple textures, creating surfaces that reflect, transmit or stop the light in its tracks. Glass is often presented as a hard, unyielding medium but my work aims to show that it can have the tactility and apparent malleability of softer, more supple materials. When people see my work, I want them to want to touch it.
I am currently working on a range of projects. My ongoing 'Imaging Inside' project runs in collaboration with cell scientists at Oxford Brookes University and takes inspiration from medical imaging practices.
