"I am fascinated by glass - by its ability to transform itself from a solid to a liquid and back to a solid again! For me it is the endless fascination of where science and art meet."
I am a glassmaker and artist who makes original, non-generic gifts out of glass! I do not blow glass - my works are proudly handmade using kilnforming and flameworking techniques and serve both functional and decorative purposes. I also run glass beadmaking lessons, Glass kilnforming workshops, and a 'How It's Made' tour called "Glass-sperience" which demonstrates three of the many techniques that are used in a Kilnforming and Flameworking glass studio.
I am inspired by colour and pattern as well as my children, family history, books, dance, travelling and the stunning country of New Zealand where I live.
I love my job and I am passionate about what I do!
