I always find wedding presents really difficult, particularly for close friends.  The wedding list feels a bit impersonal and it’s an occasion when I want to give something special and uniquely personal.  Pip has made several pieces for me now.  Each one of them we have designed together using colours and shapes chosen specifically for the individuals.  They have all been gifts I have loved giving (and found it hard to part with!); but most important they are all pieces that are truly treasured, are constantly admired and talked about and are exactly what I wanted – personal and special objects for people I really care about.

I am a glass artists, self taught with the help of a few good books and a handful of amazing artists, Mikyoung Jung, Silvia Levenson, Rudi Gritsch and Karl Harron, to name a few. Go on, have a peek at their work, they all have different ways of working with glass. A good word when working with glass is focus. I so often loose myself when forming ideas for a new piece. Making sample after sample until I can get the feeling attached to my idea into the glass in front of me. This repetitiveness calms my mind, slowly reducing the vast noise of an idea into a simple beautiful note. My long time love of gardening and passion for fabrics are huge influencers of my work. I think you will spot these as you wander through my galleries. My roots are in Lancashire, I ventured to the middle east for several years and have now happily settled with my husband in Oxfordshire. Here I have a studio in Marcham, an expanding village managing to keep a valuable community spirit.
