Handblown glass

For the home

Over last year the role our homes play as a sanctuary for emotional and physical security has come into focus.  We need our spaces to promote a feeling of wellbeing and work for our individual needs.  Creating a flexible interior that truly feels like a home is paramount, and a sense of the handmade at its very heart can transform a space into something positively personal.

 

I make glass using the human hand and soul, aiming to create objects which are more personal, relatable and enjoyable to use.  Ultimately, we all want to buy things that we won’t throw away.  By combining traditional making skills with modern design I intend to make pieces that can be treasured for many years.

Making process

Central to my work is the making process using traditional skills and quality materials.  The pieces tell a story of how they were made and the history of glass making while reflecting modern culture in their shape and pattern.  Find out what's currently in my shop here.

On my site you will find lead crystal, the orchid of the glass world.  Cut crystal sucks in light like no other glass, refracts and reflects it back in technicolour.   Soda lime glass of Murano fame comes in the juiciest colour range and is my preferred glass for bead making.  Thirdly borosilicate, a tough and versatile glass making it the perfect choice for working with a torch.  This glass does the equivalent of 0-60 in 3 seconds without compromising on clarity.  

Soon you will also finding lighting, the ultimate tool for creating atmosphere in our spaces. A sprinkle of magic and the sparkle of intrigue are coming together to make the most flexible lighting system I could dream of. Check back soon, it’s coming!  Patent pending.
