Fused Glass

I am fascinated by light and colour.

I obtained a first class degree in photography a few years ago, enjoying the quiet creativity of the darkroom, where the results were handmade and unique.

I have found a similar passion when working with glass. It can be frustrating, the results are not always predicable, but eventually the ideas come together and the results can be surprising and beautiful.

fused glass
I have recently been making pictures using copper and silver foil, encased in the glass.I am constantly learning how to realise my ideas.

    I finished my degree in photography a few years ago. I really enjoyed the quiet excitement of printing in the darkroom, the possibilities for experimentation, and each print was unique.  

    I have now found another medium which gives me the same pleasure and element of surprise on opening the kiln; the results are not always predictable, but  invariably beautiful, glass has a magical and liquid quality.
