The pieces I produce rely on a combination of techniques. The glass is prepared by fusing material of different colours into a single sheet which is then relaxed into a mould to produce a textured finish.
My work is inspired by the Northumberland coast and countryside and the plants which thrive there. Many pieces are site-specific, involving the incorporation of rock material from a particular location giving the pieces a particular regional resonance.
Many of my pieces are also mounted in local stone adding further a reference to their inspiration.
