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

The glass I make is principally decorative, it's a fabulous medium to work in (but getting increasingly costly to make). The glass and steel sculptures depict the challenges of being human; the steel heads celebrate humanity.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Small financial return. Sometimes doubt, sometimes joy and satisfaction; and gratitude when somebody in this big wide world actually buys a piece.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Glass Blower and Sculptor

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

Having a state pension means I work very much part time and light up the furnace only when there are sufficient orders to justify doing so.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

DIP ad in Stourbridge College of Art. Teaching sessions in Bristol and Manchester Polytechnics.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

Ragleth Gallery, Church Stretton. Simon Bruntnell Glass , Stourbridge.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

Erwood Station Gallery, Erwood. Oriel Crick Gallery, Crickhowell. Ragleth Gallery, Church Stretton, Montpelier Gallery Stratford.
