I'm a newcomer to working in glass and tend to use the medium almost as a painter might. I love experimenting with different colour combinations and shapes. Although most of my current work is 2 dimensional I am increasingly interested in glass casting and I am turning now more to sculptural forms. As I explore the different ways of using glass I will post more images on here.
Water in Nature has been my biggest inspiration as is it restful and calming and I have spent a lot of time near the Arabian Sea during my holidays, which has played a huge influence in my work.
My aim is to produce work that captures and communicates a sense of stillness, of calm and quiet in a busy and hectic world. I have chosen glass to explore the transparency of water as they both share the same qualities.
