Garden Rill


How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Whilst working full time my main creative activity was gardening. I started my artistic practice by making sculptures for my garden in wood, steel, stone and glass. I now work mainly in stone and glass also make smaller items interior items for the home. I like to use recycled materials where possible and introduce bold colours where I can.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I love the challenge of taking a hard material like stone or glass and transforming it into a tactile, fluid sculpture. I often seem to have more mistakes than successes, but some of my mistakes are actually the pieces that give me the most enjoyment. I recycle where possible and a lot of my work is made from, or incorporates recycled materials.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a sculptor, working with stone and glass. I established Arts in the Marches in 2008, organising garden sculpture exhibitions and craft workshops. I have since studied with many local artists and craft makers and through the encouragement of local makers, in particularly members of the Made in Ross collective, I have gained the confidence to explore my own sculpting interests.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

9 years ago, with Glenn Morris RSA , I established the Llangarron Stone carvers . We run monthly stone carving workshops, beginners always welcome.
I now run recycled glass fusing workshops on request, for individuals or small groups (max 5 people). Please get in touch for further details.
