Although I have been using Glass as my main medium for over forty years I studied Fine Art originally, and this still colours my work. I see myself as a constructivist primarily, combining different types and forms of glass with metals, both cast and fabricated. Kiln forming allows me to stage my form building, and my decision-making along the life of the progression from idea to object. In terms of imagery and intent I feel closer to the English Painting tradition than to more mainstream glass art products. Artists like Graham Sutherland, and Peter Lanyon react with the landscape in a way that I identify with. In so far as I understand my own motives, I try to produce objects that grow from observations and artefacts and which fuse (literally ! ) into a new, personal, complex, decorative unity.
I specialised in glass at the North Wales School of Art and Design, receiving my BA Hons. I was taught by two excellent people who I have much respect for on a professional level. Having brought with me various techniques in glass I still dip in and out of these........from fusing copper and enamels to painting on glass to kiln forming. I am currently combining these and producing a new line of work for 2014.
