Glass is an enchanting medium to work with but the real thrill comes from designing glass that will 'live' in its' architectural setting. Each design project is unique. I have designed glass for a variety of situations; for public buildings, including churches, synagogues and hospitals, and for the domestic environment. My specialism is glasspainting (kiln fired). It is a responsive medium producing an infinite variety of effects ranging from subtle and simple to rich and painterly. I offer a complete service, from design to manufacture and fitting.
