About me

The man in the hat

I began working in glass as a hobbyist in late 2015, and am entirely self-taught.

I originally graduated as a Manufacturing Engineer and worked for Rolls-Royce on novel manufacturing techiques for aircraft engines. This experience has been invaluable when designing processes to create the art pieces shown here.

I've been very lucky to have travelled to, and photographed, some beautiful places over the years, (usually accompanied by one of my collection of Tilley hats - which have become a bit of a trademark!)

The majority of the patterns and colour combinations I use have been inspired by things I have seen on these travels.
