In the Studio In the Woods

A Botanical Influence

In the last few weeks my work has taken on a new life of it’s own and I feel really rooted in this chapter of my creative journey. The woods have long been a place of sanctuary and wonder for me, and feeding this inspiration into my glass designs is a natural progression which I only came to realise after taking a much needed break from external events since the spring.

To capture the essence of the woodlands in which I regularly inhabit, wildflowers and leaves are collected and lightly pressed to flatten and minimise the moisture content. Glass powders are applied directly to the plants before being fired onto a base of sheet glass in the kiln. Whilst the natural materials burn away, their imprint is eternalised to be admired for generations.
