Material: Glass | Location: East Midlands
I am a metal and glass designer/maker. My work is instinctive and often my ideas only emerge as I work; experimentation and freedom to explore is key to my practice. Glass has a fluidity which gives me creative freedom, being almost alive; in contrast, metal requires a more formal approach. I love the difference between these materials and the diverse working methods constantly excite and challenge me to produce innovative work. I often combine glass and metal, each being evident in the final piece, otherwise the metal is only present in the impression that it leaves behind.

I believe that interacting with other artists within a community-based project would be mutually beneficial and I am particularly interested in opportunities to collaborate, share and enhance my practice.
