I am inspired by liminal space, geometric forms and textural surfaces, empowering process and makers marks. Casting these in coloured glass to highlight the detail and depth of overlooked objects.
Rusty rings and weathered sea glass inspire my new ‘Mooring’ collection of earrings and necklaces. The interlinking loops are hand modelled in wax first and retain my maker’s marks on the surface from the process of glass casting. I use a combination of frosted glass in ocean hues, sterling silver, and brass to create this statement jewellery with a coastal connection. I have hand-woven soft and hard wearing hemp cord as a complementary addition to the necklaces and my nod to Plymouth’s Nautical heritage as one of three rope making sites in the UK. Adorn these radiant pieces, that are perfect for those occasions when you want to feel dressed to the nines.
My Glass, Silver & Brass ‘inside the print’ earrings are cast from 3D printed spheres. They emphasise the structural details which are created by the digital hollowing, reminiscent of cityscapes, which are hidden from view when 3D printed.

Based in Devon, I am an artist with a specialism in mould making for glass. I can be found creating jewellery and sculpture in my riverside studio at Flameworks.
In 2016 Amy completed a large commission called The Cold Truth for Effervescent, Children’s Charity Barnardo’s and The Arts Council England. Creating moulds of 50 pairs of shoes, some cast in glass and some ice for an exhibition curated by young people. The Cold Truth @ Radiant.
