COMMISSIONS 

Enchanted Parks

NewcastleGateshead Initiative

Saltwell Park, Gateshead

Newcastle and Gateshead, two local councils, combine to create a Winter festival programme, which includes a large outside exhibition in a Victorian Park. Submissions are sought from practising artists and students. A series of evening exhibitions take place, the theme this year was Enchanted Parks and was about the secret life of the Park Keeper. I was successful in winning a commission this year.

WINTER 2013

The Mechanics of Optometry

National Glass Centre

Sunderland

‘Focus’ considers how we view the world through different lenses, whether the lenses in spectacles, the lens of a camera or the lens of the human eye.

Combining vintage cameras with free blown glass and high-fired decals, the cameras provide a sense of nostalgia. The blown glass bubble emerges from the lens of the camera with fired on photographic images taken from the Sunderland Eye Infirmary.
