I had been doing a short course at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland. Glass is an amazing material – of course you could spend a life time exploring it – but I have just woken to its’ possibilities. I feel similar about glass as I did when I discovered letterpress. I know neon is a typical way of using glass and text, and yes, one day I shall do my first neon piece – hopefully in the not too distant future – but there are so many processes and ways of using glass and combining that with text that it leaves the years open for endless exploration. If only my current richness of time was equalled by cash as it’s a pricey do playing and experimenting with a new material. So this is my first glass/text piece – a naiive primitive affair.
