I am a Glass Artist living and working in North Wales. I studied Applied Art/Architectural Glass and gained a 1st Class Hons. Degree.
I have recently become a member of the prestigious Guild of Makers in Wales- Craft in the Bay and was a finalist in the Glass category of Selected Makers 2016.
My latest work is directly inspired by the landscape around me, the forests, woods, mountains and skies. Wales is a wild, raw and rich landscape which my soul feels deeply connected too. I want to try to capture this in my work- my way of seeing. I am fascinated by the changing light and the magical qualities this gives the plants and trees within the landscape. I sketch, photograph and collect plants whilst out walking and when I return to my glass workshop, I try to capture the magic, the shapes and the light.
The thing which is endlessly fascinating to me in glass is the layers and how I can create so much depth and detail. I am constantly experimenting with samples and use pieces I have made almost like collage, layering and remaking so they work together.
