Artist's Statement
'My inspiration is drawn from the optical effects glass and light can induce upon one another, and in turn, how these shifting qualities can manipulate the perceived image of an object. Through them it is possible to create objects in which the laws of light, shadow, and reflection combine in ways only nature can dictate, thereby allowing us a tantalising yet transitory glimpse of refractive creations forever beyond our grasp'.
