St. Louis, MO
Every piece of glass is blown from a single tube of borosilicate glass. I use a torch to melt the tubes. Color is applied with frit, powdered glass or stringers (little strings of glass pulled from a rod) There are surprises inside the pieces of glass; favored is film. I photograph old books, playing cards, bird-watching guides and dictionaries with a 35 mm camera. The palettes and compositions are visual, auditory, and tactile sensory desserts for the wearer and observer.
