I specialise in glass mosaics and fused glass jewellery. I am currently working on a series entitled ‘Botanical Fantasy’, an exploration of colour in glass. In this series, I combine contemporary glass forming methods with the ancient art of mosaics, in an imaginary creation of exotic and alien flora. Nature utilises the entire colour spectrum, blending an infinite variety of colour schemes. I have created a universe with its own a unique botany, in order to explore the possibilities of colour in my own imaginary world.
I begin working primarily with glass in sheet or rod form. The glass is then cut and usually worked over a flame, allowing me to manipulate the glass into a variety of shapes and colour mixes. I then fire the glass in a kiln allowing it to morph into a variety of new forms.
