The Glass

Each piece of kiln-formed glass I produces is individual and unique with underlying complexities.

I start by designing and firing a series of samples from which I create my glass objects once I am satisfied that the sample is going in the right direction. With three dimensional pieces I use complementary designs, focusing on both the external and internal face of the glass, using the interplay between the two surfaces using a combination of design, colour and form. My three dimensional pieces can require 4 or 5 firings, depending on their complexity. Each piece is then finished using a combination of coldworking processes, including sandblasting, grinding and polishing.
