My work is predominately figurative in origin and addressess, through the qualities of glass, the themes of the Figure in Environment and the Human Condition. I am particularly interested in symbolisim within a composition and the play between the drawn image and Three Dimensional forms. I work to Private & Public Commision and exhibit both Nationally and Internationally
Originally a biochemist Chrissie re-discovered the challenge of experimentation with fused glass, silver stain and enamels. During her recent studies at Glyndwr University, Chrissie used hand-cut coloured glass or sandblasted float glass to translate the similarities between water and glass. Her sculptural forms are displayed in gardens, backlit with solar LEDs.
I have always loved the feel and appearance of glass. After a career in science & engineering, I have started exploring what I could achieve in glass. Glass is an amazing material. The way it reacts to heat, cold, pressure and abrasion can be surprising. Understand what the glass wants to do and you can make wonderful objects. Above all, I want my designs to be functional and useful, as well as beautiful.
