Artist Biography & CV

Your Image Description
About Off The Plinth & The Artist.
The Eastend of London is where I found my passion for glass. Night classes soon developed into short courses and before long, fulltime studies led to an Honours Degree majoring in Glass. Working with glass is like diving into a clear, deep pool full of ancient knowledge and contemporary thought. A few years later, I graduated with a Master’s Degree from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London. A fantastic institute which ushered the way for international residencies, masterclasses, further research, lecturing, mentoring, and running educational glass studios in London and Melbourne.
