In order to combine his interests in painting, graphics, craft and architecture, Christian was drawn to work in glass. After graduating from the renowned stained glass course in Swansea in 2000, he started undertaking commissions which led to establishing his first studio in Bridgend.

Over the last fifteen years Christian has been commissioned to create glass artwork all over the United Kingdom and abroad, from public projects to private commissions, and in 2012 was shortlisted for the Royal Society of Ulster Architects Art & Architecture Award. 

Alongside project work, he returned to working in the medium of stained glass and established a new studio in Ewenny near Bridgend to focus on making, designing and teaching. As well as running courses from the workshop he has also taught on the degree programme in University of Wales Trinity Saint David Swansea.
