Antique glass, sandblasted. The panel was inspired by a sketch I made of a tree, silhouetted against the night sky. I focussed on a section of branches which reflected angular and curved areas of light. My design evolved into a roughly circular and spiralling movement, much influenced by the glass that I used. I like to make designs with strong and flowing movements, using rich and contrasting colours. Ideas generally come from sketches of natural or architectural forms which I then develop into a working cartoon. However, sometimes a beautiful piece of glass can, on its own, stimulate an idea, as can the occasional commission!
