I grew up roaming and making in the Pacific Northwest. Early exposure to formal art instruction and a lot of room for experimentation has culminated in my being a maker of glass. The glass I make reflects the textures ad colors of the natural world.
Few media attract like glass. Color and light transform in ways that are unique. I have developed a technique which uses many forms of compatible glass. These glass colors and textures are layered on top of each other in a glass tray. The tray is placed in a kiln, dammed with kiln bricks, and fired. Once fired the piece has been transformed by heat into translucent images of beauty and amazing emotional powder. A story is told and captured in glass.
