Specialising in blown and lamp worked glass; I create striking sculpture and jewellery that work in perfect synchronicity with each other. Fascinated by the fast paced, exhilarating process of turning molten glass into unique sculptures, where their final form is dictated by natural forces acting on the material; I limit the control I have over each piece.
Medical imaging heavily influences my work, particularly images from inside the human body. This includes MRI scans of my fathers’ brain and scanning electron microscopy images of my own blood. I am drawn to these captivating images as they reveal insights into the human body that would otherwise be unseen; the precision of our structures and the patterns of our cells and organs is beyond fascinating to me.
I am drawn to vivid colour and pattern, often layering and blending colours to create depth in the glass whilst also exploiting the optic qualities of the material. These are then further enhanced by the decorative cold working techniques I use, finishing them with a high shine polish.
