Transient Isle Series

The starting point for these works was an oyster and the island where it lived and died. I developed my designs around the layering and ageing of the shell and the changes to the island over time. The work responds to the 'ever shifting' sands, mans' interventions, the lifecycle of the beach and the textures of the coastline.

Out of Context Series

I have taken inspiration from the humble brick, looking at walls and the art of the perfect fit. I am fascinated by the ways in which different cultures have used bricks and stones for building. The simple yet ingenious corbel arch and the impossibly precise fit of the stones in an Inca wall. My bricks have been taken out of context and interpreted in glass as a colourfully constructed art piece able to stand alone.
