In 1989 Roger began producing his own designs under Phoenix Hot Glass Studio. Ranges such as Inca and Magma incorporated coloured glass and silver and gold leaf to create stunning tableware. Designs became synonymous with quality and style with customers frequently returning for family gifts or to extend their own collections.

His work has progressed over the years from gift and tableware to sculptures and limited edition productions. A brief selection of this earlier work can be seen here.
