About

I make glass cloth pieces from fine threads of glass of no more than a few millimetres wide. I bring together strand upon strand, and then fuse them in the kiln until they resemble sheets of woven fabric. These are then re-fired and shaped to become three-dimensional artworks, ranging from free-standing sculptures, to opulent bowls. The vibrant surfaces of these pieces move and shimmer, exploiting texture, light and colour in surprising ways.
