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.
