I delight in working with glass which for me is the most inspiring and versatile of materials. I channel my enthusiasm, vision and expertise into the many forms of glasswork I design and create. My work is on display worldwide.
As a qualified teacher I provide workshops with expert tuition in “tiffany” and fused glass. I also undertake teaching in venues elsewhere.
The story of glass can be traced from Egyptian and Roman times to the present day. The beauty of glass has been capable of stirring the imagination and uplifting the soul since the Middle Ages with the stained glass windows that still illuminate many of the great cathedrals of Europe. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the name Louis Comfort Tiffany became synonymous with the stunning, flamboyant glass lamps that only the rich and famous could afford.
Throughout my years of trading as Discovery Glass I have nurtured my craft and furthered my education via tuition from many world reknown glass artists in Europe and the United States.My inspiration is derived from many diverse styles including Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Celtic, and other ethnic art.
I intuitively employ painting, fusing, slumping and many other techniques to enhance the intrinsic magic of glass, allowing my understanding of colour, design and of glass itself to transform a client’s vision into reality.
When you buy a piece of Discovery Glass you will be in the possession of a unique item. Because all that I create has been crafted by hand from a material that has many variations, you will be delighted to own a true original.
