I design and make studio glass at Fusing Ideas Glass, where my workshop and ‘La Piccola Galleria’, on the edge of the Shropshire Hills, is open by appointment whenever I am there. Inspiration is all around me: In wild hedgerows (no right or wrong colour combinations here) & formal gardens. In interesting brickwork, ancient structures or modern architecture. Pattern, texture and repetition. A world full of art at our fingertips and for me, Turner’s use of atmospheric colour & Kandinsky’s use of shapes and mark making! I’m fascinated by the fact that we may all see colours differently; and with the unique way glass transmits, refracts and reflects light, the shades & tones become infinite. Science, too, interests me and I’ve inherited a love of numbers, balance and order from my Mum; one of Bletchley Park’s merry band. Out of this melting pot comes my design aesthetic; often ordered, balanced and complex, usually colourful. My range is eclectic, experimental & individual. My body of work is growing in strength and has now crossed oceans. I have also discovered I enjoy teaching! Passing on the passion in my workshops for beginners & intermediates, small groups and one to one, from 3 hours to 5 days, and attracting students from near & far (Israel).
