My technical skill and understanding of the material, combined with a strong aesthetic voice, have meant that my work has always had an identity and language of its own. Lost wax casting is a very lengthy and multi staged process and my passion to be able to realise the work that I want to make, without compromise and with a pursuit of perfection means that I stay true to my ideas and to the material qualities of glass.
All the ideas for my work originate from a lifelong interest I have in biology and the natural world. I look to all sources for inspiration – animal, vegetable and mineral; but the one common theme that unites all my thinking has at its core ideas to do with growth and reproduction, duplication, decay and transformation.
