I have been working with glass for over thirty years. In early childhood, I displayed a passion for colour, drawing and sculpting, and attended classes at the Canterbury Art College at the age of eight. In the summer of 1973, at the age of twenty four, I started I B Designs carved and etched glass (whilst working full time as a designer).
I was instantly captivated by the scintillating qualities of light and colour in this volatile medium. I have since developed an instantly recognizable style. I am becoming known for the exquisite palette of coloured glass I use in my pieces, the absolute precision of my skills, and the uncompromising aesthetic quality.
All of my pieces are inspired from our one time existence on this beautiful planet.
I try to express my work with feeling of movement, texture and wildness. All of my pieces are designed by myself normally sketching the idea first.
They are all annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability.
Made in the flame at my studio in Margate,
It was the contemplation of old stained glass – masterpieces of craftsmanship and spiritual beauty – that stimulated my curiosity and desires to the point of abandoning my old life and embracing a new career. However, it is the contemporary approach to the craft, with the aid of modern technology, methods and processes, that breathes life into new exciting opportunities
