I am a glass maker, working in cast and blown glass. I graduated from Plymouth College of Art in 2017 with a degree in Contemporary Craft. I have set up my own studio where I continue with my casting pieces based on the Roman Cage Cup. Following a talk at college during the first year of a degree course, my initial interest originated from the history of glass making, from this developed my investigation into the methods used to make these most intricate, and delicate cups. This research was very exciting and inspired me to undertake making these pieces of work. Rather than using the reported method of blowing and engraving I decided to use the casting method to produce these cage cups first by creating them on a 3D printer and then casting in glass.
