I graduated from Buckinghamshire New University in 2014 having completed the Furniture: Design and Craft course. Whilst there I was able to experiment in other medias such as metal work, plastic and glass. My third year is when I began to learn more about hot glass work which is where my most popular product, the bowls began. Realising how much the two medias (glass and timber) complimented each other, I knew that I had to pair them in some way. Throughout constant use and development of the two materials I am learning more and more about them each day. For example, which timbers are completely safe to use and which cause more allergic reactions. Saying this though, I use a food safe finish on all of my products, which also slightly waterproofs the timber making it safe to use.
