Professional info


One of my favourite parts of making artwork is figuring out the practicalities of actually putting things together. I was the kind of kid that took apart the toaster to see how it works, and as an adult I'm not that different! My new business is giving me ample opportunities to exercise this particular skill combined with my passion for glass. 


Along with my two Glass Artist colleagues Sarah Cordingley and Jane Ellis, I have recently started a company called Glass Quarter Designs. We run a variety of artistic workshops and create bespoke glass commissions and create installations for schools, public spaces and out in industry.


I am finding this fun and rewarding and if you'd like to see some of our fantastic work at Glass Quarter Designs or to book a workshop or installation, please click this link to go to our website
