My day job is as a member of the University of Sunderland, specifically working as Head of Commissioning and the Studio at the National Glass Centre.
Here I manage a talented team of artists, and extraordinary well equipped production facilities for producing contemporary art glass and undertaking challenging bespoke commissioning. As a visitor centre we demonstrate glass production to over 200K people per year and deliver world class exhibitions in our galleries. The university has around 130 students studying glass at BA, MA & Phd levels.
