I graduated from college with a degree in contemporary crafts, specialising in glass, where for my dissertation I studied various methods of making the Roman cage cup. My collection includes pieces based on these Roman cage cups, using 3D to design and print them before casting in glass. The process is a variation of the lost wax method which has been used for hundreds of years to create objects in glass and metals. Other designs are made from a cast of an airplane my grandfather made, with this design I use cast and blown glass to create my plane in bubble collection I design the pieces myself on a computer using 3D software and I have purchased my own 3D printer so I can keep control on the items I print, and keep the costs down rather than outsourcing. Since leaving college I have set up my own studio with a kiln creating bespoke objects and commissions in glass. In my studio I mainly cast glass objects and create blown pieces when I have access to a hot shop.
