I am an artist working primarily in glass, steel, copper and brass. Having said that, I don’t consider myself a fine artist with formal training.
Perhaps I could better describe myself as an assembler, an explorer of light and materials. These I sculpt into the shapes and objects that I see in my mind. I am constantly enthralled by the way light reflects or travels through different materials creating colours and shadows in itself and its surroundings.
I draw my inspiration from the world around me, from things seen, a conversation overheard or the beauty of nature.
I want to create pieces that will speak directly to people, give them something different and make their environment a little bit more special.
Every piece is unique as each is individually made. Even the pieces that are in a series are different from each other. The fusing technique ensures that I am unable to create the same piece twice; there will always be differences.
