Artist Statement:

" I make a wide range of different designs which are constantly evolving. I deliberately design glass with a random factor, an aspect that is beyond my control. I try and use colour so that it affects the final shape of the piece in a natural and fluid way. In doing this I have to work with the glass rather than completely imposing my own constrictions.

I rarely measure a piece or write down exactly how I have made it. Sometimes this can lead to difficulties but it does mean that each design is less absolute and can evolve within its own parameters. Glass, as I know it, is a fluid material and I try and reflect that in my work.

I have many influences. Rock pools and water are constant factors in the Tableaux pieces. The glorious rich blues and greens of the Pembrokeshire shoreline and the silky pinks and golds of the Mediterranean Islands inspire the Nougat range, a tiny spider's nest - a collection of perfume bottles named Sputnik, and the textiles of South America - the Agate and Opal ranges.

Through each piece my inspiration from the world around me is evident, my surroundings and experiences are inextricably linked to my work. However the making, the history, the ideas are only a part. Just as important is what each piece says to you as you hold and look at it. Above all I want my work to speak for itself."
