We moved to Cornwall in 2004 after many years working in Norfolk designing and making samples for industry.
Having worked with many materials in the past, I found a love of glass and Cornwall.
I love to work big when I can, using lead came for my larger window and door panels.
For my smaller framed panel's I normally use the Tiffany method (copper foiled and soldered).
Glass is such a wonderful material that can be used in so many different ways.
I paint and print on the glass using traditional oxides, enamels and silver stain which I enhance with etching,
sandblasting and wire.
I also fuse and kiln form glass which I hope to enhance in the future with new metal working skills that I gained on a
course on Silversmithing at Truro College.
My work is ever evolving as I find different ways of making a mark or an impression on glass.
I never get tired of seeing how glass plays with light and manipulating it to do so.
