Working with the music of Philip Glass, this new artwork is being created to help spearhead the final stage of St.Georges Bristol capital fundraising appeal.
The sound-wave sculpture, entitled Apollo (for the Greek God of music), will consist of approximately 100 hand-blown coloured glass roundels fused together to represent the musical score, sound wave created by the opening section of Philip Glass’ Etude No 2. Find out more here.
Our latest exhibition of Glass Microbiology was at the Heller Gallery in NYC this August. Earlier this year the same series was exhibited alongside the Codex Atlanticus by Leonardo da Vinci at Artscience Museum in Singapore. Presenting the artworks in a completely different context, the artworks will be exhibited in Canterbury Cathedral 13th- 31st October.
Withdrawn - Boats delivered to new homes
Over the summer visitors to Leigh Woods in Bristol, had an unexpected encounter with a flotilla of abandoned fishing boats. Commissioned by the National Trust, for the European Green Capital, Withdrawn was an installation and venue for a special programme of events. Now the artwork has removed from the woodland and the boats delivered to their new homes across the city. Whilst most boats are being transformed into play equipment within schools and parks, Greygull is being converted into a cocktail bar, down at the docks. Read more

Park and Slide
Park and Slide was a giant 90m water slide presented on 4th May, on Park Street in Bristol for 'Making Sundays Special'. With 96,573 requests for a 'ticket to slide', more than 65,000 people came to watch on the day.

The Invisible Homeless
This life size glass sleeping figure was made as part of an Arts Council funded residency at the Glass Hub in UK. The artwork was made to highlight the growing number of hidden and invisible homeless people there now are.
Although there are less people physically sleeping on the streets of our cities these days, there are thousands of hidden homeless people staying in a hostels, squats and other forms of unsatisfactory and insecure accommodation. Go to the project webpage.
