Have a look at my Blog section for updated ideas and information.
I create flameworked and fused glass art in my studio in Barnstaple surrounded by the stunning Devon coastal countryside. My initial inspiration is taken from the colours of the sea, preferring to work with various shades of blue, green and azure. Using flat sheets of Bullseye fusible glass as the starting point, I cut and layer the glass before firing it in one of my digitally controlled kilns. I produce spectacular fused glass dishes, fused glass bowls, fused glass panels, fused glass tiles and also a range of fused glass and flameworked bead jewellery. My jewellery often includes fine and sterling silver inclusions and also the vibrant irridescent dichcroic glass.
As well as making felt scarves I have recently been busy making hand knitted fingerless gloves made with 100% pure shetland wool - some images can be viewed one of my gallery pages.
A selection of my art work is exhibited and displayed at this enterprising co-operative gallery in the beautiful North Devon surroundings of Appledore:
The Appledore Crafts Company is a popular and inspirational gallery and this year they are celebrating their 30th birthday.
