Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays

I studied glass and architecture at Central St. Martins School of Art and Design in London after previous careers as a telecommunication engineer and clinical perfusionist. Based in southwest Scotland, I work with powders and sheet glass, creating vessel forms using gravity. I have worked with this method for the past 20 years and still find new ways to explore the properties of mass, heat, and time to create new works. I make intense color combinations and patterns, physically drawing into opaque and translucent glass powders, leaving spaces in the piece for the light to react.
