ARTIST STATEMENTMy work is rooted in the process of creating. I'm in love with the act of blowing glass and its optical properties. I incorporate techniques found in both Venetian glassblowing and the Amaerican Art Glass movement. However, I approach my work two-dimensionally. Like a painter to a canvas, or a weaver using thread to create intricate tapestry. My glass pieces are compositions and a-typical to glass blowing in general.
My forms have an Asian influence which allows for my complex and painstaking coloration process to unfold. I build layer upon layer of color using glass in all particle sizes - powder, cane, frit and rod - to create original homogenous coloration and truely one of a kind work.
