I started with stained glass as a hobby. On one course I went on there was a kiln and we had a go at fusing glass. From then on I was hooked.
I completed a City and Guilds level 3 in decorative glass and have attended a number of courses to increase my knowledge and understanding of fused glass and the things you can do with it. I set up a workshop in our garage.
I love to experiment with the reactions that arise in the kiln as result of the chemicals in the different glass being heated together to such high temperatures and my work often relies on these reactions.
My work is inspired by the world around me, in the countryside and the garden. My pieces are meant to be fun and my biggest pleasure is seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they look at it.
