Hello,


The last 6 months have been a whirlwind to say the least. With the completion of a touring exhibition, 'Young Glass' that finished its travels at The National Glass Center, England, two visiting artist lectures at The Royal College of Art, London and The California College of Arts, Oakland as well as one workshop down and 2 to go, its been a busy start to 2018. Oh, and I've been grappling motherhood...a full time job in itself. 

I am delighted to announce that 'Demeter II', 'Distilled Portrait' and 'Bottled Pear' will be exhibited at this years Design Miami / Basel, Switzerland through Todd Merrill Studio from June 12-17. This is the first time that my work has been featured within this international platform for twentieth and twenty-first century furniture, lighting and objets d’art. My work will be presented among excellent company, including Molly HatchSophie Coryndon, and Shari Mendelson to name only a few. Although I cannot attend in person I am excited to have my work presented to new collectors, designers, curators and critics from around the world.
