I have loved working with glass ever since the day I started my apprenticeship at Perthshire Paperweights. I feel truly honoured to have been given the ability to create something beautiful from molten glass, and for people to then appreciate that creation, just makes it even more special.
Looking for inspiration from the world around me is now second nature; seeing a flower and thinking “I could make that in glass,” is a strange but pleasing thought. Turning the thought to reality can then become the obsession that results in beauty.
Even though it is difficult times we live in at the moment for all craftsmen, I intend to be involved in creating art and promoting true skills as long as I live.
