My study of immersion has led me to create two separate but related projects; Shorebreak, a sculpture based installation and The Most Charming Creatures, an installation of sculptural blown glass.

  • I love water. When I am in the sea, I am completely present and see the world from a different perspective. My work is an exploration of this sense of immersion articulated in an experiential way. It is informed by personal, shared experiences and memories of immersion.  My research has led me to create installation and interaction based work in glass focused on restricted viewing, light and sound.
