'Fragile Entomology - Quiet'

Photographs by Colin Tennant Photography
I've been working with glass since 2000, when I first dabbled with a leaded stained glass evening class at a local adult education centre. Since then Iíve undertaken formal study at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 2007 with a degree in Applied Arts: Architectural Glass. I took the plunge and opened my own studio in Edinburgh in 2009, where I produce my work and teach classes.
Please browse the gallery sections for further images of my sculpture, commissions and giftware.
I started my artistic career at an early age with the sometimes difficult medium of mud on self, decades later and Iím still unable to keep any cleaner during the creative process.
Having expanded my palette of materials over that time, thereís very little that doesnít appear with the glass Iíve been trained to sculpt including textile, metal, wood and those quirky found objects that you just canít bear to part with.
Consequently, the resulting sculpture always attempts to retain elements of the familiar as well as presenting various themes with a new twist and a little of the ridiculous.
These go out to my friends and family who provide me with unending support and encouragement.
