This recent commission was to produce a set of 6 placemats and coasters that matched the clients furnishings - you can see one of the seat pads on the dining chair. Both came out really well and I think you'll agree provide a very stylish and modern addition to the table...

This lovely little mirror was made in colours to match a young lady's bedroom...

This small panel was for the front door of a property that is just a stones throw away from the sea. Three different blue/green shades were used to recreate the waves and the fabulously strong red, orange and yellow colours for the setting sun.

This cute little fused glass hanging was a request for a surprise birthday present for a panda fan! He came out rather well (even if I do say so myself) and I've now added him to my standard stock...

This little commission was to design and make a small glass pony. He had to be dark brown and black and I therefore used a mixture of two different browns (to add interest one of these was a heavily textured glass) and an opaque black. He was constructed using the copperfoil technique.

This little fellow was a request for a gift for a turtle lover. It provided a great opportunity for using frit (small pieces of glass) through a stencil.

Kingfisher

These two feathered friends were a commission for the same customer. They're rather nice as they show two different styles of glass work perfectly! The kingfisher has been 'hot-worked' by fusing the glass in the kiln and the cockerell has been 'cold-worked' using copper foil technique

The pictures on the right show a recent commission I completed for a door panel for a 1950's home. The couple that commissioned this piece had just had a bespoke front door made by a local craftsman, and they were keen to incorporate some glass.

The brief was to produce a design, inspired by Art Deco, inkeeping with the original features of the house and the movement's resurgence in the 1950's.

The top left picture shows the panel 'under construction' in my workshop, the top right picture shows it finished and 'in-situ', as do the bottom two. Have to say how lucky I feel to be asked to design and construct something for such a beautiful door...

A recent commission included a pair of leaded panels to go above a set of internal double doors in a private physiotherapy practice.

The brief for these windows was to produce a design that depicted the Dorset countryside (which would reflect the family's move to the area), and the inclusion of a rising/setting sun.

The final design that was chosen shows the many aspects of the new home's locality: the sea and beach (Dorset has a wonderful coastline!), rolling hills, Hardy's Monument, and an abstraction of Maiden Castle hillfort.

Guitar DSC04291

I was asked to produce this hanging decoration in memory of a keen guitarist. It was designed to be used as a rememberance decoration on the Christmas tree.

I was able to use some lovely dichroic glass to represent the body of the guitar which was close to the colours of the original guitar. It was personalised on the neck of the guitar, which I have removed for the purpose of this photograph.
