Hello my Dear Glass Loving Friends
I have always been very creative and have tried working with many media over the years, but my undoubted favourite is Glass, because working with glass is a magical mystical experience which brings about Alchemy.
Although the artist has a certain degree of control when working with glass, the glass demands its own freedom of expression, almost as if it has a sub-conscious mind of its own.
I am also a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist, so working with Glass is the perfect partnership for me as I often go into a trance connecting with my subconscious mind to creatively express and have a mutual trust and respect that my creation will be enhanced by the final say of the glass. I love the element of surprise that is the gift that glass contributes.
“Within every piece that I make, I always welcome creative flow which often surprises me as it appears to come from beyond the 6 senses, hence all of my work is made from the source of Pure Divine Love, Flow and Creative Expression. Each creation is unique, bespoke and none identical to any other.”
I design and make Lamp Work Beads, Jewellery, Fused Glass Creations, Leaded Glass Designs, Leaded Glass Panels and Glass Light Catchers. I work in my own Art Studio with a Lampwork Torch where I melt glass rods in a flame. I draw my own designs, cut the glass to specification and fuse in one of my 2 Kilns. Every piece is annealed in a kiln to strengthen the glass for everyday use.
