I make kiln formed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln to form parabolic and hyperbolic curves in search for theories of how our Universe is created. Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time I aim to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in.
I mostly use opaque glass powders to construct my work with many coldworking processes to shape and mark the glass after firing including sandblasting and diamond point and wheel engraving.
I’ve worked with glass for the past 11 years, graduating from Central St Martin’s School of Art & Design in London with Distinction studying Postgraduate Certificate in Glass & Architecture, before re-locating to Dumfries & Galloway in 2005.
