Roger’s career working in glass spans more than 30 years.
Roger graduated from Manchester Poly in 1975 with a BA(Hons) in 3D Design – Glass and Metal.
During the 80′s he was chief maker for two leading UK studios before setting up Phoenix Hot Glass Studio in 1989.
Phoenix enjoyed a great deal of success for 16 years making small batch production runs of Roger’s designs for gift shops and craft galleries and specially commissioned corporate work for clients throughout the UK.
In 2005 Roger moved away from production work to concentrate on sculptural, installation pieces and exhibitions. His work continues to be technically challenging as befits a craftsman of his experience. He is now based in the Creative Cohesion studios on Nile Street in Sunderland where he produces much of his work.
Roger’s most up to date productions can be viewed at Creative Cohesion Gallery in Sunderland
