I live and work in Sheffield. My work is usually made using recycled float glass, often with wire inclusions. At some stage I expect I'll use colour more, but at the moment I like the simplicity of clear glass and wire - a bit like line drawings. Occasionally I use lead crystal because of its refractive qualities.
