Life in the Fast Lane
My work is fused glass which is the art of taking two or more pieces of glass and fusing them together to high temperatures in the kiln. I work with bright colours to create pieces which are cheerful and vibrant. I work with colour because I like to make pieces which themselves are 'stars of the show'. I like to experiment with textures, and often my work is sandblasted to create a matte finish, rather than the high gloss which is usual with glass work.
Being an artist means being able to express myself, particularly in colour. I like to take colours and create pieces which brighten and enhance mood, whether that is my own, or that of purchasers of my work
I am a glass artist, working in fused and slumped glass.
I create in my garden studio. Occasionally, I offer workshops for those wanting to try glass fusing, and/or those just starting out.
I began working with glass in 2012. I have attended lots of courses throughout the UK, and online courses with American glass artists in the USA. I am a member of The Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen
I regularly exhibit with The Herefordshire Guild of Craftsmen. I also participate in Open Studios for two weeks of the year.
