Maker's statement

This group was specially commissioned for the CAC at the Glass Symposium 1976. Most recent simple forms with very delicate double hooking of threaded colour. Influences for me from Japanese craft objects, their starkness and beauty. I want to blow thinner more basic shapes with subtle applied colour.
