About

I am a glass blower, I graduated from the University of Sunderland/National Glass Centre in 2014 where I studied part time for 6 years. In 2016 I took the plunge and set up my own studio at home and made it my full time ocupation after 28 years working for the NHS.
I use traditional Glass Blowing techniques to make items ranging from exhibition pieces inspired by disease and medical science,to pieces for the home with organic forms and textures.
