Cast Work

“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.
