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.
