I was born in Japan and graduated from an art college in Tokyo.
I moved to UK in 1989 and discovered glass engraving. .
I took a variety of short courses and became a craft member of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 1994.
I exhibit regularly in exhibitions and have done various commissions (both private and commercial).
Born 17th June 1952, Leicester, England.
After working for over twenty years as a freelance jewellery designer/maker I turned to working in glass in 1995. I was initially greatly helped by Kate Drew Wilkinson and have taken classes subsequently with very many people and I am still learning. I have found this a wonderful medium for personal expression and have been able to help to introduce other people to it through teaching the technique of flame work. I also demonstrate and give lectures. In 2001 I went to India to work with native craftsmen on new designs for a commercial catalogue and since then I have taught in Switzerland, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, New Zealand and USA as well as here in Britain.
I now work and teach in my studio at home.
From my studio in Brighton, I produce an array of kiln formed glassware & jewellery as well as undertaking interior design projects & private commissions.
As a self taught artist, I have been working & experimenting with glass for over 15 years. 'Glass in Fusion' is the development of that knowledge into a unique range of both decorative & functional works of art and bespoke pieces.
