I graduate this year from Plymouth College of Art and look forward to presenting my work. Glass as a material seems to have magical qualities and I often lose track of time as I work with it. The pieces I create can be driven by an emotional response to a snippet of music, a glimpse of a beautiful work of art or often an issue that moves me and I specialise in one-off or limited edition contemporary pieces designed to inspire and provoke.
I have Graduated form PCAD in the summer of 2008 from a BA (Hons) degree in Applied Art. I decided to specialise in glass in my second year and have loved it ever since.
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.
