Vic’s uniquely illustrated pieces usually involve themes relating to memory, place and storytelling. Whether invoking memories of the streets and fishing fleets of his own hometown of Hull, or illuminating corners of the history of his now local parish of Dudley, or exploring the subject of a significant commission, he depicts subjects with honesty, humour and enthusiasm. He can spend weeks on a single piece, preparing developmental drawings and hand painting them in his studio. The pieces are blown in the "hot shop," blowing studio, located in Stourbridge. His work is held in many private and public collections worldwide.
