The All Things Glass story began in Hampshire when I decided to learn how to do Stained Glass. I quickly built up a stock of offcuts and thought, Lets use some of this to try out Fused Glass. Unfortunately it did not quite work out that way as the stained glass is incompatible with fused glass, and I now have two completely different stocks of glass.
I started with Jewellery and have progressed from there to larger pieces including pictures, dishes, hangers, clocks, freestanding pieces and Vases. I am always experimenting and no two pieces will be exactly the same. I specialise in a technique known as tack (or contour) which fuses the pieces of glass together, but retains a three dimensional finish to the piece for more detail and tactility.
I sell my pieces through craft fairs and a more limited range online and am a member of the Wessex Guild of Craftsmen who promote a number of Craft Designers producing a range of very high quality products. I also offer glass fusing courses at my Horndean Hampshire Studio to very small groups to help intoduce others to the fascinating world of fused glass. These courses typically have no more than two people attending, so you can be assured of lots of individual attention (see the Course page for further information).
