The greater part of my work is dedicated to flora and fauna and of course my indulgent Deco glassware, but I absolutely thrive on challenges and the opportunity to create something unique and bespoke for private commissions or installations.
For birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Christmas and all those other special occasions that deserve a gift with a difference, contact me and we’ll discuss all romantic notions and possibilities.
Artists, like actors, often find themselves type cast by the work they become ‘known’ for.
Whilst recognition for a body of original art is tremendously uplifting, it can often force you along a path that, ultimately, creates its own limitations.
Having spent my life indulging the various spices life has to offer, I sate my desire for diversity with an entirely contrasting approach; the chic and so, so sophisticated style of Art Deco.
In contrast to the natural, Nouveau-esque forms of my sculpture, the necessary precision and mathematical accuracy the Deco works demand enables the perfect mental and creative balance; essential to maintaining a consistent inspired approach to my work.
Please get in touch to discuss a commission.
The Oyster bowl; commissioned by a client in California who wanted something appropriate and unique to gift her sister on her very last ‘Oysterfest’, a celebration she has hosted for thirty years. Fate struck a crushing blow during the making of this bowl, but the kindness of strangers gave me renewed vigour and inspiration to finish the piece in time for the party in August 2018 . . .
Commissioned by a private client to add to her collection of fourteen of my glass orchid sculptures; an aqua pansy orchid. this lady loves glass and is clearly as passionate about orchids as I am!
Apaloosa True Blue
Commissioned by the same client; a blue moth orchid.
A pair of Glass Palos Verdes butterflies; one in pale silvery blue, the other in rich true blue. Commissioned by a client passionate about this endangered species native to the Palos Verdes Peninsula in southwest Los Angeles County, California, United States. As it’s distribution has been proven to be limited to one single site, it has one of the best claims to being the world’s rarest butterfly.
