Artist Statement

My passion is to create glass designs with visual depth, strong color and texture that celebrates nature through the unique character of glass. I find inspiration from the four seasons and its impact on landscapes and animal habitats.

I transform glass through kiln fusing to develop spectacular colors & depth. Designs start on a glass base, and then elements are added & fused. After the initial fuse additional glass, and sometimes 14K gold, are added to develop the depth (physical & visual), texture & accents. A typical piece goes through 4 glass builds & fuses, each fusing transition is unique for that stage. By creating layers at different depths & color density light moves uniquely through the piece & draws you in.
