After a slight career detour (training to be a waste water engineer) I decided to follow my passions and re-train.
Art, and more specifically, glass art! Due to lack of facilities within Cornwall I had to learn the process in the old fashioned way, reading books and experimenting. Being self taught allows me to break free of the confines of other peoples techniques and ideas and create my own unique style. I love tactile art so I always create lots of texture in my glass, the extra surface area allows much more light reflection which brings each piece to life.
My workshop has been visited and authenticated by the Made in Cornwall team so you can be sure you are receiving artwork handmade in Cornwall. My studio in the Historic Market House in St Austell is crammed to the rafters with glass equipment and supplies, photography equipment and packing supplies, there is no room for extra staff, I make everything, by hand, myself.
