An internal window measuring 101 x 54 cms, situated between a bedroom and en-suite, in a strikingly modern house with breath-taking sea views.
The house has large expanses of glazing, but a very simple colour palette. Taking the house and its views as my starting point, a Scots pine which seemed to be reflected in the glazing from several view points, I took inspiration from the strong straight lines in the architecture together with many features found in the garden and on the beach. Reluctant to produce an image 'of the house' or 'of the surroundings' I was attempting to get a fine balance of a strong design and sympathetic colours to sit comfortably with the clients' lifestyle.

I've felt frustration at how so many people equate stained glass with churches and Victorian architecture.
During 2016 I was exploring a new way of working with glass, sometimes including a little more metal and other materials, definitely with a focus on opaque and textured glass - making the art more sculptural.
This new work is mounted onto soft-white painted and waxed board, designed to be hung flat on or propped against a wall, allowing the glass to be shown without back light, displayed in the same way as a painting, ceramic, or sculpture.
