Artists Statement: 
Employing techniques such as Swedish overlays, my work combines function and aesthetics with a focus on creating vessels that emphasise the light transmitting properties glass. Inspired by the natural world and our modern, technologically driven lives, my works reflect these motifs through intricate designs that are carved onto the surface of the glass. This creates layers of dimension that tell stories and evoke emotions in the viewer. My pieces are intended to be works of beauty that bring joy to those who view it.
