Tonnau Glas


Titus first started to cast glass from plaster impressions made from beach sand ripples on Poppit Sands after attending a creative glass workshop in Cardiff 15 years ago. Titus realised that there is an interesting relationship between tidal seawater, sand, and glass and that environmental glass art had the potential to highlight the immense beauty of our marine environment in the only coastal National Park in mainland UK - Pembrokeshire National Park. Titus hopes this will inspire people to preserve this beautiful place, naturally.

With the support of friends Titus crowdfunded a small glass kiln and was commissioned in 2019 by Hywel Dda NHS to create a large glass artwork for placing in the new Cardigan Integrated Care Centre.

Called ‘Cyswllt’ (connection), which Titus hopes will the piece incorporates lights, and music - made from the wavelengths in the glass casts, together with an image of Cardigan Island and the phrase ‘Let no person be an island to themselves” which carries so much meaning for Titus as friends were a key part of completing the work on time. Titus hopes will promote a connection to the natural world inside the building.

Other pieces are sited locally to Cardigan at The Cliff Hotel at Gwbert, Tonnau Surf Shop and Pritchard and Cowburn Opticians in Cardigan town, and Crwst Poppit café, near the beach itself.

Titus has also been featured on S4C ‘Heno’ programme where he created an inscribed panel of tidal glass with the poem ‘Llanw’ (Tide) by the former Archdruid and Bard, Dic Jones.

Titus continues to live close to Poppit Sands and makes glass work alongside his other passion, painting coastal landscape.
