“Coming from a background of printed textiles, and the two dimensional, my interests have been about achieving depth through texture. This is referenced in my new work, pursuing how line and texture can become the form, and how the choice of which can very much alter the message and context of the vessel.

I mirror the soft organic lines created when molten colour bleeds into the other, with a biomorphic form. These moody, soft ethereal colour bleeds are reminiscent of dip dyed fabrics. This enhances both the qualities of the glass medium, and the free tonal movement of colour inciting moods and memories.”
