‘My work comes from two passions, a love of process and of outdoor wild spaces’
I create visually simple sculpture in glass, copper and steel by combining multiple craft processes such as casting, forging, welding and polishing in different ways. My ideas come from the landscapes I have walked through, the water I have swum in and the organic forms I have touched.
There is something exquisite in how a cliff meets the sea or how a tree forms itself around an obstacle in its path and I feel echoes of this in the meeting of my materials and in the feel of texture and weightiness in my hands.
The making process is a distillation of all this into shape and form while at the same time recalling and revisiting that initial encounter.
