I use conventional glass materials in unconventional ways to decorate the interior surfaces of handblown glass vessels. This includes tumbling glass cane inside vessels to create fused nests of glass and applying silver and copper leaf, by hand and while the piece is still hot and on the punty, to the interior surface. Fusing the metal leaf to the interior in this fashion allows the metals and original colors of the vessel to interact and create somewhat serendipitous and new colors and patterns. It is this balance between serendipity and control that is at the core of my work and motivates me to try new things.
