Volcanic Series (latest work)
Challenge: To express and capture the physical aspects of colour, pattern and texture of our local volcanic landscape, and express something of the immense untapped energy of this environment in glass.

After all, Obsidian (naturally occurring glass) is the result of volcanic activity and it seemed obvious to me that the medium of hot glass lended itself perfectly to expressing the textures and colour of geothermal activity.
