‘There’s a buzz about the place’
Manchester Metropolitan University
Plates commissioned for the installation of the Vice Chancellor of MMU. The piece represents the relationship between MMU and the city of Manchester. Worker bees buzz across the vintage plates with rich gold leaves intertwining in multiple layers of decoration.
Private commission, London
‘This commission was for a private client, for a large hallway that reaches 4 levels. There is a decorative banister throughout, which works beautifully with the rich gold decoration on the lights.’
‘I completed a commission for Andor Technology, Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2005, where I installed 62 large wall lights (using colour changing LEDs as their light source) in their new corporate headquarters.’
Manchester Art Gallery
‘This commission was initiated through my involvement with the Arts Council of England and led to a series of lighting pieces specifically designed and made for the Gallery restaurant and café.’
