Star Cross'd Heart
Antique glass, acid etched, sandblasted and painted. The title of this piece is "Star Cross"d Heart", Shakespeares" Romeo and Juliet offered up the naming. At the centre, the heart and stars set diagonally in a saltire cross. Fate, the stars and affairs of the heart. Simple emblematic design motifs. My work is unashamedly decorative, taking marks and motifs from my printmaking work. Arts and Crafts philosophy combined with contemporary architectural function and spatial integrity. I work in public and private buildings as diverse as a 14th century house to a modern leisure centre.
