I have a wide range of interests within the medium and enjoy the beautiful and unique qualities of hot glass, considering myself as both a maker and a designer.
I recently moved to Denmark to work for Backhaus Brown, based in Hundested. This has been a huge move for me but something I'm incredibly proud of myself for doing and looking forward to the future immensely.
I interned from October to Christmas 2019 in Ebeltoft, Denmark with Tobias Møhl and Trine Drivsholm. This was a wonderful opportunity for me to work with such amazing artists as well as being in a rich and supportive glass community.
In March to July 2019 I undertook a 4 month technical internship at North Lands Creative in Lybster, Scotland. Whilst there I learnt the ins and outs of running and maintaining a studio, using this knowledge to build my own mini furnace. I was able to work on new ideas inspired by the scenery, artists in residence and master craftspeople teaching classes.
My most recent body of work is derived from a concept of irregular evolution; as if an entirely new environment has been discovered and I am studying the creatures and growth from it. I worked in collaboration with the Dr Lewis Bingle of the University of Sunderland Science department, to take samples from my course environment, especially the hot glass areas such as the blocks and blow pipe ends. We then grew these samples on agar plates and I extrapolated the designs and influences of my work from these studies.
