My work is inspired by nature, the seasons, landscapes and geology. The colours, shapes, rhythm and repetition of form all motivate me to interpret them in glass.
The interplay of light on the surface and through the glass fascinates me. The creation of shadows, manipulating surface texture and creating depth and “windows of light” all encourage me to continue experimenting.
My main body of work utilises reactive glass; I enjoy experimenting with temperature and colour combinations to maximise potential reactions. I will fire pieces multiple times to utilise reactions but also create texture. Whilst the colour palette can be limited, the results can be startling; the apparent simplicity of a piece belies the underlying complexity of it’s creation.
