I make decorative glass items at my workshop in bladnoch. These include stained glass (windows, panels, and lamps), slumped glass ( bowls, plates, candlelights and tableware) and fused glass (clocks, panels and jewellery). I am inspired by nature and by the materials themselves.
I consider myself fortunate to be able to spend my working time in a way that I thoroughly enjoy.
