I live and work in the beautiful Cornish countryside.
Following a long career in teaching ceramics and three dimensional design, I started to experiment with glass some years ago. As well as researching and experimenting with stained glass techniques, I also started to use the kiln for early experiments in fusing. This led to a whole world of possibilities, especially when the glass industry started to supply glass specifically designed for fusing.
My early fused glass work was jewellery, which was enormously popular and was retailed in a number of jewellery shops across the UK. I applied the experience gained to larger pieces such as bowls and coasters. More recently, I have also started to produce fused glass pictures for wall hanging and sun catchers which sell as fast as I can make them.
I find that I can relate my work to sculpture and my love of natural forms is apparent in all my work, large and small.
