I have always specialised in making exclusive luxury glasswork, comprising excuisite taste and detail for the most discerning clientele. The unique works of art created include glass bowls and commissioned glass architecture.
My inspiration comes from natural rythmical patterns found in nature. We have a myriad of beautiful patterns and colours in this wild and magnificently beautiful, fantastically magical place.
Apprenticed mechanical engineering technician at Hayward & Tyler, Luton and worked in specialised engineering projects worldwide.
Working with glass in various forms since 1992, exploring decorative glass by gilding, engraving flat glass & crystalware, kilnwork including painting, coldworking, fusing & slumping.
Lived and worked in Belize and returned to UK so that our children could finish their education in the UK and have reasonable opportunities afterwards.

Working from home studio, exploring the addictive intricacies and fascination of torchworked borosilicate glass.
