About

I have always been interested in exploring three dimensions through architecture and sculpture.

Along with figurative work and portaiture many of my sculptures relate to landscape and walks that I have undertaken through the medium of carving in wood and stone .

In recent years I have been exploring the medium of glass and have become fascinated by the way it can be used to capture and manipulate light. In my glass sculptures I have tried to use these properties to convey the life force within living things.

My work includes fusing and slumping glass over hand made moulds and I have recently been exploring casting, both in plaster/quartz moulds and open casting into sand moulds using both kiln firing and hot pouring methods to create interesting textures.

The imagery I use relates to the positive life force emerging from water and developing through DNA into organic forms and in particular in the female torso.

The silver birch is a particularly positive image for me representing new growth. More recentley I have been exploring landscape and in particular the mountains and waterways of Wales.
