My doors will be open from 11am - 5pm for visitors and demonstrations - I think that having the glass is only half the experience, the making needs to be seen. Directions here.

Finding my studio once in Yew Tree Court has been a thing- as you leave the main road, look left and you will see these barns on your far left. Follow the drive left and you will end up between my studio and the main road. Good Luck!

The weather is on our side again - I'm at Aldeburgh Gallery until the end of Wednesday 18th May - fabulous fish&chip shops on either side and the seafront through an arch on the other side of the road.

My third time exhibiting at The Quay has just finished and it was a pleasure. Snape Maltings has its very own atmosphere of sublte, expansive, beauty. This is the first time I have seen The Cygnet under sail, looking appropriately sculptural in the company of works by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

We are looking forward to opening at The Quay Gallery next Friday. Snape Maltings is a cultural centre in a designated 'Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty' so there is plenty to do and see aside from our printmaking and flamework glass.

Was drawn up by Lorrette E Roberts - an illustrator widely published here and in Asia, so my barn has had the five star treatment...

Some of Mr Turner's sketchbooks.. from the Turner Bequest. We went to see the 'Late Turner' at the Tate late last year. What I didn't know (not having seen the Mike Leigh film yet) was how prolific he was, that a sketchbook and any mark-making implement were like extensions of his hands. Appare...Read Full Post »

To a new studio/workshop! Many reasons but amongst them the following conversation: 'Do you teach lampwork glass classes?', 'Not at the moment but leave me your contact details.' 'I did that THREE YEARS AGO!'. Plus numerous requests for sales hours, the option of renting torch time and etc.
Last time I taught flamework was in Singapore....Read Full Post »

Only one more weekend of Open Studios to go but I think the award for 'Most Disgruntled Trailing Spouse' is probably in the bag. While his wife having watched me flameworking, examined my glass a weary and bewlidered gentleman gestured round my studio and said: 'We s...Read Full Post »

My unusually tidy workbench. The jug of water is to quench tools or receive glass that has gone badly arwy. The stainless steel pot holds vermiculite, it permits small pieces of glass to cool slowly. I usually put my glass straight into the kiln, left to room temperature the core w...Read Full Post »

Thanks to everyone who came by, silversmiths, engineers, jewellers, students, parents, holiday makers, supportive spouses and innocent bystanders. Thanks for putting on the safety glasses, leaning in and asking questions. It was a pleasure to meet you. Three more weekends to go.
