Quite simply this person loves to walk and explore. I notice the landscape with its colours and shapes. Then the active birdlife presents me with an even greater challenge. Both sketches and digital images produce a huge resource which I use as starting points when I work with my chosen medium. Often a pastel painting will urge me to work further but with coloured glass producing fused glass panels. My latest challenge is to go back to my sketches and doodles and to redevelop them using different grades of glass and high firing enamels.
The glass panels can be framed to hang in the home. Larger pieces can be set in Lake District slate to stand free in the garden. Small panels twist and turn, hanging from trees or catch the light suspended in the window.
I work from a studio at home and offer informal sessions ‘Playing with Glass’.
