Biography
Dominic graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art with a Masters Degree in 2001. He has been studio assistant to Catherine Hough, Steven Newell and Iestyn Davies and worked on many private and public commissions. He has curated and toured the exhibitions Ten Green Bottles and Haiku and Glass and frequently collaborates with the designer Jennifer Walsh. At present Dominic is the co-editor of the Contemporary Glass Society Newsletter. Dominic’s work usually takes the form of short stories engraved onto glass. The aim of the stories is to explore the glass vessel as a container for thoughts and emotions alongside what ever physical attributes they possess.

Summer 2001 - Stories from the ministry - 24 engraved glass bowls for the Inland Revenue offices Longbenton, Newcastlle. Spring/Summer 2006 - Synapse - Residency and commission for Pricewaterhouse-Cooper, Newcastle.
