“My first love was making pots. I loved working with clay. But it was
just too slow…”
The cast work is where that first love is rekindled: groups of cast
glass forms that begin life as cardboard templates before clay models
are employed to create refractory plaster moulds. The glass is then cast
in a kiln at around 860 degrees, before the forms are then cut, carved
and grouped to make abstract arrangements, fictional landscapes.
The shapes often capture the marks made in other pieces, their fluidity
a mark of the responsiveness of glass.
