meet the maker
I work with fused glass in my small workshop in Leicestershire. I'm always learning new techniques, experimenting with new designs and colours. It's great fun!
Glass can be 'slumped' into shape but I mainly use it quite flat with added patterns and textures for the eyes and wings for example. I make my own cabochons to attach in an additional cooler firing and add a variety of inclusions. The aim is to make an item for 'outdoors' (or 'in' if you'd prefer) that will be beautiful and hopefully useful too.
Nature is the source of my inspiration, designing from it or for it. I am attracted to quite neutral colours and use a lot of transparent glass as opposed to opaque.
I generally try out a design idea and straight away move on because my brain is just buzzing with more ideas! The plus side of this style of working for my collectors means if you buy a product from me, you'll truly be the owner of an exclusive design. Every piece is handmade and different to the last.
I sincerely hope you like my designs. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. E: firstname.lastname@example.org or T: 07854 704664
