Born and brought up in the inspiring surroundings of the English Lake District, Sally studied Furniture and Jewellery Design for her degree at Edinburgh College of Art, winning a scholarship to fund a post graduate research year.
Sally was an accomplished silver jeweller before falling in love with glass. She had worked as a part-time lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art and as a design technology teacher, which gave her the time to develop her own creativity. Sally loves to experiment and push the boundaries. Whether it is using recycled materials, acid etching metals or combining sand and metals into glass, Sally loves to try new techniques. She has been an arts officer for Borders Scrap Store; art worker and tutor for Impact Arts and local councils as well as for private institutions such as Higham Hall. She has been a silver jewellery tutor for more than twenty years.
Sally now combines her silver and glass expertise to create artwork; the colours of which take inspiration from nature, particularly from the seas, landscapes and wildlife. She particularly loves the aqua blues of the seas on the west coast of Scotland. After making part-time, for many years, Sally recently took the plunge and gave up teaching to focus full-time on her glass and metal work business. Products range from glass and silver jewellery to bespoke decorative items such as birds, bowls, plates and plaques.
