Hello

I’m a designer maker who creates sculptures mainly through casting techniques. I really like using glass as I find the material enjoyable to work with and I find I am drawn to the finishes that can be created, especially the refinement of the polish.

This work was a collaboration with Truro Cathedral.

The piece was inspired by the  Holy Communion Chalice’s.

The chalice that I was inspired by was made from silver and covered in precious jewels that women from  the community had  donated to the church. I wanted to explore other materials that that in the future could become a precious or rare material.

 

These are some of my most recent works, looking at cells.
