Artist's Statement:
During my degree in 3D design at Manchester Metropolitan University I became interested in glass, and, especially, kiln formed glass. I used this media to explore my passion for colour and texture. My work is based on the power of colour. The feelings I can create can alter the mood, to either stimulate or sooth the viewer. Although I use mainly industrial materials such as glass, wire, enamels etc; my designs are based on organic themes such as stones, marine life or even spermatozoids. I use the natural environment as a starting point but my designs evolve from one piece to another, always trying to show how light can influence each piece. I work with this media as I enjoy its many technical qualities and I like the way light can alter each piece. The combination of vibrant colours and textural surfaces within my work aim to express a notion of movement, this explains why air bubbles are captured within the majority of my work. I use a wide range of colours, mainly for their vibrancy which I feel gives them a powerful impact. After graduating I concentrated on creating bowls that aim to show that something functional can also be a piece of art. With help from the Prince’s Trust Fund I now have access to an improved kiln, this enables me to create larger pieces and explore more sculptural ideas. My collections now include bowls, free standing curves, wall hangings, illuminated wall hangings, and illuminated curves. By illuminating some of my designs it enables me to further explore the colour through light and shadow in the same piece, showing the different resonance of one colour.After further development of the business I have now moved to Deptford, London and set up a new studio. I am now part of a dynamic community alongside established designer-makers who have achieved national and international recognition. Throughout the year I take part in exhibitions and events around the country.
