My fused glass work is inspired by colours, flowers and the sea. My love affair with fused glass started the moment I first touched it’s smooth and cool surfaces, I didn’t want to put it down! I enjoy playing with the translucency and opacity of glass, blending colours, layers and textures. I love the simplicity and fluidity of the shapes created when the glass melts and the sharp edges dissolve to become rounded, softened and curvy.
I adore the seaside and luckily live close to Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. I hope that I have captured a little piece of the beach in the blue ripples, silver sails, deckchair stripes and ice-cream beach huts of my fused glass. My glass also features bright, rainbow flower designs which should put a smile on your face.
All of the fused glass you see on my website has been hand-made by me in my studio near Heathfield in East Sussex. I have been experimenting with fused glass for 7 years now, and selling on-line for 5 years. I have several shops and galleries around the country that sell my work in Canterbury, Brighton, Rye, Worthing, Tunbridge Wells, Heathfield, Cornwall, Wales and Scotland.
I also accept commissions for larger pieces or bespoke work, so if you would like to discuss your ideas, please drop me a message via the contact form.
More recently, I have also started sourcing vintage glass from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s to create unusual vintage jewellery pieces. If you would like to take a look at some of my work, please visit my other website at; http://the-vintage-glass-garden.myshopify.com.
