My sculpture, which is predominantly cast glass, uses a colour grading technique I developed at the Royal College of Art with combinations of colour that I have been developing over the past 7 years. The abstract external forms and their internal geometry are determined by the colour effects I wish the viewer to see, which also vary significantly with the viewing angle and conditions of illumination.

Differently coloured internal segments are seen in combination by means of internally transmitted and refracted light, for example to achieve a gradual transition from one colour to another. Some sculptures feature thin shafts or other shapes of light at their centre or outside edges. Air bubbles are incorporated in defined patterns, veiling, or in random distribution.

I am inspired by nature and artists including Turner and Rothko.  Some of my sculptures represent an instant in time in imagined cosmic events. Glass, colour, geometry and light are the visible parameters of my sculptures, I strive for beauty by means of conceptual thought, traditional and innovative techniques and hard labour.
