Blown, sculptural glass with a strong African emergence 

My birthplace Africa, has had the greatest influence on my work. During my last visit, I immersed myself in the raw energy of the country and found inspiration in the traditions of everyday life there - its splendour, power, and spiritual beauty.

These vessels have a definite bird like quality, the idea was conceived whilst marvelling at a documentary on the great flocks of birds that migrate between Europe and Africa. I felt enormous pleasure thinking that various birds that I may encounter in the spring, would most likely have just flown in from my birthplace.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
