It has been said that "man cannot duplicate nature but merely represent it." I hope that every piece I create, combining natural and man-made materials, is a reflection of that statement. It is the discovery and application of various elemental materials which enables me to create a unique body of work. The vessels are kiln formed glass using various pyrolytic surface applications to create color, pattern and texture. Combinations of various materials are used to create the pedestals, such as wood, copper and concrete.

Our functional and sculptural hand cast pieces have architectural and organic fluidity of form in thirteen brilliant colors. We use ancient processes with updated techniques to create classic yet contemporary objects. Each mold is a hand carved design. We also design and make hand blown drink ware in a palette of five colors.

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.

My glass includes imaginary planets, vessels and sculptural work. Each piece is connected to the last one, either by obvious physical traits or conceptual threads, usually involving scientific, astrophysical or astronomical themes.

My work tells stories about the fabric of people's lives and the rituals created to bring comfort to our lives. As families and communities, we create shared folklore to memorialize people, places and events. As individuals, we create personal mythologies to help us contextualize our past and imagine our future. Intertwining these themes, my work similarly meshes artistic disciplines in a memory-based, magical realism scaffolded by nostalgia.

Three thousand years of glassmaking has yielded vessel forms in all shapes and sizes. However, I believe there is still much to explore whether a vessel is functional or non-functional. Form, color, proportion, texture --- all play an important role in how an object is perceived. Sandblasting or acid polishing the surface emphasizes the form, and highlights colors interaction with light.

I am most interested in color, especially color relationships in the designs I create. Utilizing traditional Italian cane (or striping) techniques in new and personalized ways is the driving force behind most of my current designs. Since molten glass is such an unforgiving and challenging substance to tame and manipulate, it is a continual learning process for anyone who chooses to utilize it as a medium.

Glass can fascinate by the ability to contain light and reverse plasticity. Focus on form has been so absorbing as to leave some unique qualities associated with glass, brilliant colors and shine especially, past the horizons of interest. Resulting objects are abstract, visually balanced, delineated by minimal representation of form and volumes. Frequently employed techniques are glass blowing, cutting, carving, sandblasting and spot polishing.

I prefer to work in blown forms because they capture a touch of life and a unique part of the artistic process; the human breath. By piercing the bubbles with a flame and leaving only their pure form, these captured bubbles are reduced to their absolute basic structure, pure essence, or inner life force. They are not stitched or woven, but rather blown, manipulated, and fumed with precious metals.
