I utilize a mix of three elements: glass, precious metals and gemstones. Into each design. My work is an exploration of the interplay between man and nature. I am intrigued by our ability to both value its beauty while our actions impact its natural systems. My technique involves the centuries-old process of cold working the glass which does not use heat, but rather, water to keep the glass cool while I manipulate it using techniques such as grinding, drilling, cutting, and sandblasting.
