"I make blown glass vessels with strong sculptural qualities. My inspiration is often some small detail in nature such as a seed pod or a fish's fin. Continuing themes in my work are the relationship between the interior and exterior of a vessel and decoration that is integral to the form. As a maker I experience the hot material as soft and luminous and I try to preserve these qualities in the finished work. By layering transparent and opaque colours, I create vibrant and translucent objects that change with natural light, through the day."
