Review posted Oct. 29, 2018

Firstly, apologies for not providing this review sooner - I had taken on the work of several unwell colleagues on top of my own work, and only just starting to catch up with things! I can't speak highly enough in praise of Tony's magnificent artworks. All three of them are now hanging in front of my main window - which looks across the River Teifi to Cardigan Castle. Two of them are 'lightcatchers', shown at their best with the light behind them, and with this dramatic backdrop. Both of these bronze wire/glass cast artworks are really unique (I've seen nothing like them) and have a fine expression of form within this unusual medium, which really conveys a fine sense of the dancers portrayed. The other work is a delightful recreation in Tony's favourite cast glass medium of an ancient Cretan (I think) horse, a very striking piece. I feel honoured to own all three artworks. Tony sent the artworks very carefully packed, and I enjoyed some nice communications with him. Thoroughly recommended!

Thanks, Martin. You’re right, of course, the horse is Cretan. I spent a happy hour or two in Heraklion museum tracing out Cretan pottery designs - so fluently applied, so much movement! I’m glad you’ve given these works a good home :) Tony

I'm delighted with the glass monolith. It is beautiful and arrived so well packaged. Tony kept me informed every step of the way re. delivery and told me a great deal about how he finds his inspiration to make such beautiful works of art.

An unusual piece of art, nice on a windowsill to allow the light to shine through the glass.

Breath-taking! I love art and I love glass so combine the two and the end result is beyond words. Tony is a warm soul and it shows through his work and his communication with his clients. The original pieces I bought were shattered during during delivery. When I opened the package, I was devastated. I showed Tony the pictures and he immediately told me to not worry and would make and send replacements. His replacements were just as beautiful and original. Thank Tony, for making my dancing flames come to life! Laura Hansen

Tony was very easy to communicate with and fulfilled the order despite breakages of the glass art in transit. The glass monoliths are unique and stunning.

I really wanted to get a piece of Tony's work and in fact purchased two items. Both arrived in excellent condition and packed extremely well. I'm extremely pleased with both items.

I’d been admiring Tony’s work for a few years before making my purchase. I’m glad I finally took the plunge. The glass paintings are more spectacular in person than in pictures. The products of a very skilled artist and craftsman.
