I've been playing with glass for a couple of years now and really want to make a full time career out of it. Having the cash to help me train and get vital equipment would be amazing! The trouble is, it's all very expensive and difficult to get going, so I'd really appreciate your support to help me find a way to fund my dream!

I will send you something absolutely lovely, and unique, made of glass if you support my project - there are a lot of things to choose from in the rewards section.

If I manage to raise enough money it will make a massive difference to the range of things I can make. I've got so many ideas waiting to come to life, but just need a little cash injection to bring them all into reality.

I'm hugely passionate about glass in all its forms but especially fused glass, flame worked glass and glass casting. It's an amazing medium to work in and it feels like alchemy when I turn shards of glass into things of beauty. I'm currently studying silversmithing to make better jewellery with the things I make as well.

Here are some of the essential items I will buy with the money donated - this will give me the ability to make some amazing pieces and realise my dream!

I already bought a kiln, which is probably the biggest expense in getting started with glass making, but I really need the training and tools to get me going properly. There are so many techniques I want to learn so I can transform my ideas into realities.
