I design and engrave glassware because I love the quality of light through colour and I want to produce accessible and decorative work that people enjoy seeing and owning.

My workshop gallery in the beautiful Hirsel Country Estate is open to the public Sunday afternoons and most weekdays.

I draw and apply a unique stencil to each piece of hand blown crystal through which I can sandblast the pattern into the coloured surface of the glass. I like to follow the flow of the form but my designs are inspired by nature, I am especially drawn to aquatic themes. I have two strands of work, repeatable designs which are always evolving and one off forms.

I always welcome commissions.
