Designer / maker of art installations and sculptural lighting.
I make sculptural lighting tailored to architectural spaces on all scales, in buildings from public to domestic, from grand to intimate. My forms are organically inspired, using materials such as woven metal meshes, glass, low energy fibre optics and LEDs combined to produce an atmospheric blend of ethereal silhouettes, subtle shapes and light. During the last few years I have been able to extend this fascination with light, shadow and transparency by working with kiln formed glass. I love the way that the material flows into the mould giving very organic shapes and the luminous qualities of glass, whether it is lit by natural or artificial light.
I run workshops for children and adults in my studio, colleges, schools and galleries. I really enjoy sharing my extensive making knoledge to inspire people to be creative.
Commissions include working with Alsop Architects to design lights for the Institute of Molecular Science, Blizard Institute, Queen Mary College London 2004; a hand-crafted installation of nine sculptural lights at Paignton Community Library, Devon 2010; Glass sculpture for University of Exeter, Business School, Devon 2011. Most recently working with Mercure Hotels to design, hand craft and install sculptural lighting 2015.
Other commissions include lighting displays for the Conran Shop London and Paris stores and lighting for The Brit Awards party. The Spike Light is included in the Victoria and Albert Museum permanent collection. I have previously sold work to Liberty, Conran and Heals, and designed lighting manufactured under royalty by Fontana Arte between 2000-2006 ‘Longbow'.
