In the beautiful summer of 2014 I used to steal away from the workshop shed with my beautiful boy cat Jaffa and we’d roll around together on the grass of the cottage lawn, soaking up the warmth of the sun. The inspiration for the Summer Meadow Collection came to me in those now very precious times. Whatever you’re doing, take a moment to enjoy the wonder of everybody & everything around you x
Sitting finished on top of the kiln is the first pink ‘Summer Meadow’ table lamp!
I love Blackpool, I love my home town. I remember outside the old souvenir shops rows upon rows of spinning display racks full of postcards, old black & white local scenes that had been brightly over colourised. These new pieces take inspiration from those cheerful, historic, photo-chromed, Victorian images.

We’re working on a couple of pieces from my original ‘Leaf Collection’. I adore the unique organic character of each of these pressed cow parsley. Using actual leaf inclusions in this way was a technique I created in the very beginning of my glass fusing journey and is still my favourite signature style.
