I have always admired works in glass and have collected pieces over the years. When the onset of rheumatoid arthritis meant that I could no longer work as a woodturner I decided to follow my love of glass and learn how to make fused glass objects.

After a lifetime working with wood, originally as a carpenter and joiner and more lately making turned wood pieces that sold in galleries and are in collections around the world, the challenge of learning a new skill was both stimulating and alarming. With tuition from an accomplished glass artist I am developing my skills and am establishing my own style of work. I enjoy planning and cutting my selections of glass and it is a new challenge to learn to work with colour proportions and placement to achieve the planned design.
