What inspires the colours you use?
Nature is the greatest artist. The colours that I’m most interested in are often iridescent and hard to achieve but easily found in nature: abalone shell, jellyfish and labradonite crystal, for example. I love to create pieces which enable colour and light to create an illusion of movement.
How do you define what you are trying to do?
I’m always seeking to capture a softness within the glass by freezing organic movement and lines, by choreographing them into a subliminal form. In this way, each piece removes itself from being definite and possesses a life of its own, embodied in a sense of warmth and a wealth of emotions.

What do people not realise about your work?
My work is designed to be tactile, and the colours I use are not added pigments. In my Subtle Flow series the colours are the result of chemical reactions. In Otherworldly Bodies, the colours change as you touch the surface because they appear according to the amount of light in the work.
What do you love most about your craft?
I love being in a state of creativity. Glass is the main medium through which I communicate with the world and express myself. I’m constantly searching for ways to alter the perception of glass as being sturdy and cold, to capture and convey the material in its most fundamental fluidity.
