Concept and composition in glass. Exploring the distribution and division of form, space and light to define structure and perspective. Utilizing complex geometries to expose abstract qualities such as containment and suspension.
Process, translation and colour control form an integral part of the work. Producing structures in combinations of hand blown, cast and architectural glass in two and three dimensional form. Works include unique sculptural compositions to limited production concepts for both commissions and prototyping.
