Designer / maker of art installations and sculptural lighting.
I make sculptural lighting tailored to architectural spaces on all scales, in buildings from public to domestic, from grand to intimate. My forms are organically inspired, using materials such as woven metal meshes, glass, low energy fibre optics and LEDs combined to produce an atmospheric blend of ethereal silhouettes, subtle shapes and light. I have been able to extend this fascination with light, shadow and transparency by working with kiln formed glass. I love the way that the material flows into the mould giving very organic shapes and the luminous qualities of glass, whether it is lit by natural or artificial light.
I am constantly fascinated, cannot help but probe, the boundaries that define each of us as a unique person. The boundaries that others construct for us whether social, cultural or physical are so often implicit rather than explicit. I try to use glass as a means of revealing, exploring, hopefully deconstructing those implicit boundaries.
