Graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University 2012 BA Hons Three Dimensional Design. Have just resigned from The World of Glass as an Assistant Glassblower due to commencing a MA in Glass at MMU.
I am mainly interested in installation and sculptural work. I use glass as a material to express ideas and narratives and I am interested in gaining skills in areas of new technology such as laser and waterjet cutting.
