The last few years have been enormous and an end of an era.

.....so now we are starting a new era in an exciting new seaside location in a new studio in a renovated house.  
 

Artspace Studio

The studio is almost complete, it now has a roof,  glass doors, and we can hear the sea! 
2013 was very exciting; Wave was a 15m floating sculptural installation commissioned for a private lake in Yorkshire. I was one of 3 artists invited to design public sculpture to celebrate the completion of Canary Wharf. 

 



Winning 'Spotlight'  meant I had a solo show of my sculpture in Andipa gallery in Knightsbridge and went to an artfair at the Saatchi gallery with them. I was then commissioned to create sculptures for a private client in Dubai. This took up most of 2014 and at the same time, we decided to put the house and studio on the market, and relocate to Southbourne. 

 



In 2013 we launched a range of sustainable glass lighting, mirrors from bottles at Decorex and I considered consolidating the 2 years of research by writing a PhD or MPhil. However, I won a global competition and started designing and creating artworks for bars from Heineken bottles. This effectively meant that my research was promoted and published all at once. We had events where creatives enjoyed the beer and we then reused the bottles in different way: as an aggregate in a concrete reception desk for a night club, as fused inclusions in a stylised sound wave  wall artwork for a music bar. And flattened and mosaiced into a mirror and glass 14m  sequence of over bar panels.
 

 


2015 has been all about relocating to Southbourne, Heineken, a commission from Horlicks and restoring storm damaged sculpture back to glory. Co curating a glass exhibition for 2016 with Curator Jacquiline Creswell at Salisbury Cathedral has been really interesting, enjoyable and enlightening. Altogether the year has been very busy and sets the scene for 2016. 
 
I have really enjoyed working with my wonderful assistants Ilse Black and Gaby Kienle, as well as a team of creatives who step in to help, especially when deadlines loom.
