Artists Statement: 
Glass + is what I love. Combining glass with other elements helps to keep me happy and productive.
Artists Biography: 
Started kiln work 19 years ago making dichroic glass jewellery pieces in a kiln. Self taught as no one in WA was using dichroic for jewellery (or anything else)that long ago. I can't say I've supported myself with my jewellery but certainly supplemented our retirement and allowed us to take great holidays. 3 or 4 years ago i felt the need to extend my glass work (still using a kiln) I have been happily making functional and well as nature based art pieces. Whilst they aren't as lucrative as jewellery I satisfy my artistic, greeny inclined inner self by continuing to produce arty glass.
