This is one of my series of cast glass sculptures called ‘A dialogue at the threshold’.
The glass ‘box’ is an opaque lapis blue fired with a circle of 23.5ct gold and fitted with a highly polished clear glass cube.
The sculpture has a textured surface cast from a deeply ribbed fabric
10 × 10 × 8 cm
Wipe over with a damp cloth if required
This is a simple geometric textured box in lapis blue opaque glass. Within it is a recessed polished clear glass cube revealing a gold circle textured with a grid, reflected into the dark inner mass of the fabric covered box.
The grids act as a barrier to exploration but the circle of gold is reflected several times over suggesting a further depth in the interior, like a kaleidoscope.
The viewer is drawn into the recess of the box creating a fluidity between the inside and the outside.

Since graduating over 20 years ago I’ve specialised in creating cast sculptures and bowls. I show internationally as well as prestigious exhibitions such as the British Glass Biennale.
My cast glass sculpture series ‘A Dialogue at the Threshold is now on the Handmade Online Shop. The viewer is drawn in to my dense glass boxes by the allure of 23.5ct gold. Some are architectural, others are visually soft, appearing to be encased by fabric. There is a fluidity between the inside and the outside. The interplay between the interior and the exterior articulates a dialogue at the threshold.
The textured glass bowls are one of my favourite ways of working, another method I have developed and evolved. The surface is created using highly textured fabrics. My most recent bowls feature small handmade elements which I cast and fire and then incorporate them in a second firing to make the abstract flower and berry bowls. All the pieces are unique – the plaster mould is broken away – then the bowl is fired again to a lower temperature to create a bowl form. Finally the edges are highly polished which highlights the colour and contrasts with the opacity of the textured glass.
The ‘Rocky sculptures’ explore the beauty of stone bridges, dry stone walling and rocky outcrops. The compositions are evocative of the landscape and suggest rocks and stones placed harmoniously together, contrasting defined edges with the softness of adjacent vegetation. The blocks of colour echo the surrounding landscape, water and sky. They have a sense of place and atmosphere.
I am in the Craft Council Directory and I belong to the Society of Designer Craftsmen and the Sussex Guild.
My workshop is in West Sussex and is in a converted stable, a wonderful place to make and create.
