I have always been intrigued by the colours and textures of the coast, by wide horizons, big skies and shingle beaches. 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 with a pocketful of shells.
I don't try to replicate the natural world but work with simple shapes and forms, using horizontal and vertical elements to instil a sense of calm and balance within each piece.
I have recently downsized my workshop after moving to Suffolk and now make small artworks for the home. I have also returned to my first love with a collection of Seascape jewellery in coastal colours inspired by sea glass and pebbles.
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.
