BIO

Ever since the first induction into the hot glass workshop, I have fallen in love with the material. I am fascinated by the fluidity of hot glass and the control required to work with it. I particularly enjoy allowing the material to dictate the form of the pieces in a natural way. I also find the effect colour can have on the form of a piece extremely interesting. These pieces have been developed through experimenting with layering different colours both solid, and frit, to see how it affects the final form.

I am inspired by the concept of urban decay. The way man made structures become forgotten about and left to Mother Nature to reclaim.

I plan to continue exploring the way glass dictates its final form in a natural way, and also how I can further express the reclamation of urban spaces by Mother Nature.
