Thanks to all who attended and to Craft Scotland for the opportunity.
I only use mouth blown glass in my work. LambertsGlas in Germany is the best in my opinion. They produce an amazing range of colours.
Here's a short film to show you how its made.

In September 2016 I undertook an Inches Carr Trust artist residency at Sweeney's Bothy on the Isle of Eigg.
Having visited on a family holiday the year before i was keen to return, alone, to further explore and research the islands landscape.
This uninterrupted week allowed me time to quietly observe the changing light of the sky and clouds and its reflective effect on the surface of water. I focused on the rock pools on the Singing Sands, geological textures, plant forms, and the geometric patterns created by tidal movement on the naturally monochrome sand on Laig Bay beach.
No internet, just me, my materials and my thoughts, bliss.
