Woven glass is an enigma, a contradiction, a complex and beautiful mystery. It challenges the observer in his perceptions of material properties. It is at once soft like a delicate fabric and cold, vitreous and eternal. I weave with glass. It's not an illusion, it is truly woven. My work is the result of skilled glass cutting, careful color selection, and precisely controlled kiln firing.

This work uses rock forms as theme elements in the exploration of balance. I consider the effects of form, weight, color, pattern, opacity and translucency. I sometimes contrast rock forms with open vessel forms. I strive to create compositions that capture a moment in time when the dynamics of tension and gravity are in balance. Each piece is constructed of blown and solid glass worked and joined hot on the pipe, many are etched.

The themes of my glass sculptures revolve around the psychological and physical relationships we have with animals and their larger connection to our environment. These colorful worlds allow me to explore concepts of perception, liminality, and memory. My sculptures tell a story about the fragility and conservation of these small worlds as well as describing their role in a grander scheme. My glass landscapes and animals are advocates for the precious worlds they represent.

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 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 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.

I have been honing my skills for the past ten plus years and have continually thought of how to blend both traditional glass working techniques with modern design and functionality. With these thoughts in mind I draw inspiration from both Italian and Scandinavian designers and glass houses from the last century. Ultimately I create new forms, shapes, line qualities, and textures that seek to embody the same timeless qualities in a new world.

I’ve always had an interest in sculpture, painting and science with an eagerness to rise to a difficult challenge and succeed with beautiful color. Handcrafted artisan glass was the answer to my artistic inquiries and I have been sculpting glass into works of art since 1998. What has gained me the most notoriety, are vortex marbles. These perfectly round spheres with spirals of color play with optics and physics to create visual depths that transcend the physicality of the piece itself.

Glass is often described as a super-cooled liquid. I prefer to think of it as static motion. I design pieces that retain the organic character of their molten state. Using primarily transparent colors and a few well-placed stripes, my pieces highlight the material's transparency, fluidity and potential for brilliant coloration. Rather than making works that demand to be center stage, I envision my pieces as quiet assistants; subtly enhancing the environments they are placed in.
