Process:

My glass making process is this.....

I use flat sheets of coloured glass, cut and shape it and join it to make panels and pictures. I fuse glass - heat to melt (fire) the assembled glass in a kiln (oven) to make a flat patterned "blank". Then I may slump these blanks (firing to drop the blanks into or over ceramic moulds) to shape the glass into bowls, plates, light shades or into my own unique designed moulds. I play and explore, stretch my exploration of glass.

I have been making more Jewellery combining fine silver with coloured glass and with Dichroic glass - glass which has a fine layer of metal applied to the surface which when fired changes colour.


Collaborations:

I have been collaborating with Julie Shortland who makes "Forever Bouquets" wedding bouquets that last forever - I have made clear glass flowers to be incorporated in her "Enchanted Flowers" bouquets.
