              A little bit about me...

              I've lived a stone's throw from the English Lake District for most of my life.  It's a beautiful part of the world and I'm very lucky to be able to spend my free time outside exploring the fells and lakes and the Solway coast.   My home and studio are in the pretty market town of Cockermouth.  The mountains, lakes and the coast have all inspired me in many ways, in particular, I'm drawn to natural textures such as lichen on old stone walls, the bark of gnarly hawthorn trees and the tide patterns on the beach.  

              What am I'm currently working on?

              This peice was made with beautiful earthy green/grey glass. Shown opposite after it's first firing, it has since been flipped over, sifted with a creamy, vanilla powdered glass and re-fired to enhance the holes.  I really love making these organic shapes as I never quite know how the holes will develop.  I'm working on a series of these as wall hangings and bowls of various sizes and shapes.  They'll be added to the shop soon.
