I use predominantly hot glass to create factual and imagined objects that often take the form of individual pieces or collections of curiosities. Inspiration comes from many sources. Personal experiences, peculiar facts, elaborate hoaxes and more recently, voyages of discovery, endeavour and exploration all help to inform, whilst a passion for both traditional craft skills and innovative new technologies play an important part in the execution of the work.
Glass is a fantastic medium to work in; it is beautiful and also useful. I enjoy making items that have functional application, that are tactile, and that are good for more than just 'looking at'. Functional. Beautiful. Glass.
Originally training as a 3D designer in Glass and ceramics, I worked in IT as my main career but always kept an interest in design, either Web design when working in IT or visiting exhibitions. Now my interest has returned to Glass as a medium. I'm studying Glass on an MA in Applied Art and Design at Wolverhampton. Using Hot glass my blown glass forms revolve around experimental form with inclusions of different material, trying to develop a technique that gives me some consistency and ability to reproduce pattern and textural qualities.My sculptural pieces get quite complex, such as the cartridge vessels (illustrated).
