"By using opaque coloured glass I can convince the viewer that they are looking at a piece of glazed porcelain. Only when they realise that the interior of the piece is transparent, does the material reveal itself to be blown glass. I like carving through the layer of opaque colour to create these "windows" into the interior world within"
