Much of my career as an educator was as an art teacher where I developed skills in a range of arts genres. Whilst I enjoy many techniques, including textiles, drawing and ceramics, my passion is glass.
My work highlights the sculptural and architectural possibilities in this medium. The textures and colours of glass, when fused and contoured in the kiln, produce exquisite 3D objects. I always get excited when I am opening the kiln.
I use fusing and slumping of transparent and opaque glass, in addition to recycling glass to create sculptures and functional art as well as whimsical ornaments.
