Unique, contemporary and quality fused glass for your home

Glass is a fascinating medium to work with. It is both tactile and fragile - it can be soft yet brittle and should be treated with respect. All my glass is kiln formed - this means that I cut, grind, clean and then fuse the glass in a kiln to produce items such as jewellery, glass fishes and dishes.

My inspiration for my glass changes often and I all my glass is design-led. I am interested in patchwork quilts, folk art and hearts and am currently working on a range of kaleidoscope glass dishes. I love colour, particularly colours that are brash and bright like the colours found in artificial textile and food dyes. You can almost see the additives and chemical dyes in my work!

I mainly use Bullseye glass which has the best colour range in both opal and transparent glass and I also like to fuse "float" glass which is the scrap glass left over from picture framing. It has a lower fusing rate which makes it ideal for adding inclusions such as washers and razor blades. I expect my glass items to endure and keep their quality.
