I have always been intrigued by the colours and textures of the coast, by the wide horizons and the big skies. I have been working with glass since 1998, fusing it with metals and oxides to create objects that, I hope, evoke long forgotten feelings of walking along the seashore.
I don't want to replicate the natural world so I work with simple shapes and forms and use horizontal and vertical designs to instil a sense of calm and balance within each piece.
I make a range of fused glass pieces for the home including coasters, dishes, wall art and freestanding panels.
Although I am inspired by the coast, I make all my glasswork in my home studio in rural Northamptonshire, a very long way from the sea.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
