Working in cast glass with abstract sculptural forms I draw lines through space -
exploring the translucent nature of glass by using twists, turns and sweeps of curve and shifts of density
to lend a smooth and tactile nature to the contours of the forms.
I aim to achieve a sense of lightness, rhythm and frozen action by creating a feeling of tension
within the work.
I am interested in the paradoxes of these forms – how the glass can look fragile yet is strong,
is balanced yet looks precarious, and weightless - yet with form and substance.
