As an innovative and creative second-generation designer/glassmaker my desire to work with glass and constantly experiment with new techniques is our driving force. For more than 35 years, he has researched, developed, and refined a wide variety of techniques to combine his fascination with studio glassmaking, technology, and graphic arts. he fuses graphic imagery – sometimes elaborate and figurative, with the molten fluidity of hot glass, to create both contemporary and classical works.
Cameo and Gräal, along with multi-layered ‘hot’ surface decoration form the core of his technical repertoire, enabling tremendous scope for color, shape, and pattern. His first pieces of Gräal were produced in 1988, using relatively simple patterns, which he drew by hand onto the surface of the glass and then carved through the layers of color. He continued to develop this process, which leads to the refined and detailed designs that he continues to produce today. He introduced the use of 24ct gold and sterling silver leaf into his designs, the first collection of which was launched in 1992 in Harrods and Liberty of London with tremendous success.
In 1999, together with his wife Alison and his small team of highly skilled Artisans, he set up a leading-edge studio, located at the Coalport China Museum in the Ironbridge Gorge, World Heritage Site, which provides the perfect haven for him to continue his progression of combining innovation and technology with ancient craftsmanship, which provokes an exciting combination. Gallé, Carder, and Tiffany were others who used science and technology in the development of their work.
A must for glass collectors. Each piece is a piece of art and 100% hand-made.
