I am an Edinburgh based sculptor working primarily in the mediums of glass and ceramics. I explore the simplicity of form in combination with pattern and surface texture to explore ideas relating to the human condition. I specialise in casting and engraving techniques. I have just completed my MFA (distinction) in Glass at Edinburgh College of Art and I have exhibited internationally.
The work explores the concept of being in a place; what emotions are felt, what is experienced, and how the abstraction of this understanding can be transmuted into images on glass.
An ongoing intimate exploration of the Brecon Beacons informs the work. Personal reflection and observation is what the mark making is about, what it will become.
