NEWSFLASH - This year I will be participating in Art Trek - North Devon Open Studios from September 2017. Please come along to 14 The Gallery, Torrington to view a larger exhibition of my work with demonstrations. More information in my Blog.
I create flameworked and fused glass art in my studio in Barnstaple surrounded by the stunning Devon coastal countryside. My initial inspiration is taken from the colours of the sea, preferring to work with various shades of blue, green and azure. Using flat sheets of Bullseye fusible glass as the starting point, I cut and layer the glass before firing it in one of my digitally controlled kilns. I produce spectacular fused glass dishes, fused glass bowls, fused glass panels, fused glass tiles and also a range of fused glass and flameworked bead jewellery. My jewellery often includes fine and sterling silver inclusions and also the vibrant irridescent dichcroic glass.
My fused glass art is exhibited and displayed in two enterprising co-operative galleries in the beautiful North Devon surroundings.
The Appledore Crafts Company can be seen in the lively fishing port of Appledore. www.appledorecraftscompany.co.uk
14 The Gallery is located in the eclectic Pannier Market in Great Torrington.
