I have been captivated by the medium of glass, I now produce unique pieces in my studio in the village, Iona.
I produce decorative and functional glass pieces for sale both on Iona and at galleries in Scotland and England. Individual commissions undertaken. Living on the beautiful island of Iona provides the inspiration for my practise. The colours can be magical, not just the vibrant blues and greens of a sunlit sea, but also the more subtle hues found in the shallows. I use fusing and casting techniques to explore and abstract the myriad of colours found in the smallest object and translate this information into finished glass pieces. My casting work focuses on the natural forms and textures found on the many white sand beaches and in the numerous rock pools. I am enchanted by the flora and fauna in all its many forms. I use fusing and slumping techniques as well as kiln carving to produce dishes, platters, bowls and hangings that have proved so popular with both locals and visitors. I welcome visitors to my studio, open by appointment. Please come and browse and enjoy.
