I create glass art using words and text. These 'word-scapes' embody text more than render it clearly- text becomes evocative texture, although close inspection of the originals facilitates a degree reading and de-ciphering. My work stems from ancient traditions of manuscript writing, and I've engaged with these since my early teens. You can see a broader range of my work in various media at my website

Technical info for a typical piece:
4 - 6 sheets of 2mm glass, each spaced about 5mm apart. Each sheet is diamond engraved on both sides, also with acid-etched painted textures. Mounted over hand painted and often gilt paper background bearing a unique giclée print. The printed image is a digital composition derived from blurred and colorized scans from the actual sheets of engraved glass.

The images comprise 3 conceptual dimensions:
1. The hand-engraved lines
2. Shadows cast by the former
3. 'Virtual' shadows which are giclée printed images of blurred scans from the glass
