Glass Sculptor

Working in Glass is a challenging and rewarding experience. I find it fascinating to take material that is hard, flat, and inflexible then transform it into objects that appear to be more fluid and softer in shape and texture. The color and  texture can be manipulated with the addition of metal, glass paint, and other glasses to alter the surface, all while respecting the unique characteristics of the glass.

Working as an artist for many years, I have discovered that the beauty of the process is as important as the finished product. I have learned to get out of my own way when things don’t go exactly as planned, to discover new ways of looking at and doing things. In essence, letting go of the rigid concepts to allow for the softer flow of reality, I can push myself and materials in new and unexpected ways.
