Australian born but now living in the UK, my work is inspired by the earliest of human endeavours to manipulate basic materials into functional and decorative objects. I am interested in utilising textures found in natural materials and look to our earliest ancestors to help convey a sense of ancient material culture embodied in objects produced using luxurious contemporary specialist art glass.
I use a lost-wax casting process for 3D sculptural forms and kiln fusing and slumping techniques.
