I work principally in kilncast glass, often combined with other media such as metal, stone and wood. I exhibit internationally and have work in over 55 museum collections worldwide as well as many private collections.

I work with high quality optical crystal, taking inspiration from nature, architecture and everyday objects. Using lost wax casting I create sculptures with rough highly textured areas contrasted with immaculately polished and reflective surfaces, using both clear glass and colour.

Established in 1981 my Gloucestershire studio is well equipped enabling me to cast large pieces and undertake commissions both private and corporate.

Notable commissions include ‘Musa Cavendishii’, a magnificent glass table for Chatsworth House, ‘Cipher Stone’, the landmark artwork for the new GCHQ and one of the largest piece of art glass to have been cast in the UK, and ‘Ikthus’ an intimate font in the Sacred Silver and Glass Gallery, V&A.
