Castle and Sun I

My work aims to be a celebration of life. By exploring and capturing a fragmented fleeting idea; exploring beautiful objects/concepts/

moments the pieces encourage one to pause and acknowledge that beauty.  My work itself causes more curiosity.
 

I am intrigued by how water, sky and glass share certain qualities. How fluid becomes solid; how to portray/capture movement into the solid and using reflection, transparency, opacity and colour.

 

I am a modern stained glass artist using traditional techniques but with fewer rules to inspire and reflect wonder. Using basic concepts of Tiffany copper-foiling to solder a variety of man made, hand rolled and glass shaped by nature together, I form a whole.

 

My influences are from the natural and synthetic world. The sky, the coast, wind, trees but also from music, dance, written or spoken sound.

 

In exploring this fragile world I am often engaging with the constraints of physics, playing with light and colour, channelling sparks of emotion or thought, building flights of fancy. Encouraging a return to non-stop curiosity.
