I used to write and illustrate children's books, ten years ago I changed to fusing glass. I wish I had discovered it before! It gives me immense pleasure.
Practicing as both architects and glass artists, we develop innovative projects that focus on the hybrid of these two areas on scales from the micro to the mega. We include a range of interactive technology including sound and light and provide an innovative approach to structural and integrated work.
