Artist/Designer now specializing in Sculpture/3D construction and print.30+ years International experience in Product,Interior and Architectural design. Having gained wide experience of process and materials technology now concentrating on employing this knowledge to create my own works in a broad range of materials: including; metals, ceramic, glass, wood and mixed media.
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.
Thinking and design time are my most important building blocks. They are such an enjoyable part of the creative process!
Colour, form, movement and light are prime motivators in my work.
Newness is my challenge.
I am a designer-maker of cast and kiln formed glass. I will be graduating from UCA Farnham in June 2013. My designs come from a wealth of experience in environmental design and archaeology. I make architectural pieces as well as functional and sculptural objects.
