Colin is regarded internationally as a pioneer in the field of kiln cast glass, and is widely considered to be one of the most important sculptors working in glass.  He exhibits internationally and has artworks in over 45 museum collections worldwide. He has undertaken many public and private commissions often combining glass with other media such as metal, stone or wood. Based in his studio In SW England, Colin has developed the expertise and facilities to handle large scale commissions in glass.

Notable commissions include ‘Cipher Stone’, at over 500kg – one of the largest artworks to have been cast in optical glass in the UK; ‘Ikthus’, a cast crystal font which can be seen in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and Bamboo Scroll, a major sculpture for Shanghai Public Library.

Colin won the prestigious People’s Prize at the 2010 British Glass Biennale for his piece ‘Still Life with Books’.  He is an Associate of the Royal Society of British Sculptors and an honorary member of the Contemporary Glass Society.
