Here is a small selection of my work, showing its versatility, and some of the ways people are enjoying it.
The Spark, was commissioned
By City University in London to transcend two floors and bring light and colour into the newly built basement.
It hangs 3 meters off the ground and rises to 8 meters, it is visible from both street level and the lower ground floor.
It is made of three equal sections of 10mm thick toughened glass, back lit with LED Light sheets, and is 1 meter wide.
The original idea was to fill the whole wall with a cascade of glass but the budget did not reach that far. To compensate for this I designed a halo of light that i projected onto the wall which effectively extended the artwork beyond the glazed perimeters, and kept the bursar happy!
"The artwork represents the powerful "SPARK" of knowledge that transmitted from the teacher to the pupil.
I am sure we all have memories of at least one teacher that was able to get information through to us in a way that will last forever. I also visualized a flash of electricity jumping across the synapses to form a neural pathway in the brain".
Dream home for Lord Ganesha,
God of new beginnings and remover of obsticles.
This amazing and highly detailed artwork was the result of close collaborative discussions with the client who recently built their own beautiful dream home in North London, and from the outset planned a space in the hallway to include an illuminated artwork of some sort.
They came across me at The Grand designs Live exhibition and immediately saw that I was the right artist for the job.
Every last detail in this artwork depicts statues, flowers fruit, and other items in their home. It was another example of how I am able to fulfill clients dreams.
This spectacular Crystal Tree is one of my latest inventions.
It can be made as a wall hung illuminated colour changing artwork, and will look great in any room.
Or as made to measure double glazed windows, door panels or room dividers. The photo on the left was shown off at the Grand Designs Live exhibition in May and stole the show! People were delighted with the versatility of it and the relatively low cost compared to my other works.
These designs are amazing to look at as they let lots of light in and can be made with either clear toughened glass to see the view beyond (see below) or as in the photo on the left satin etched for ultimate privacy. The first Crystal Tree was in satin etched glass for a bathroom that overlooked by neighbours.
