Artist Statement:

My goal as an artist is to create pieces that are unique, beautiful and add a dimension of pleasure in every day life, while also acting as a catalyst for thought and reflection by the viewer. My work and imagery are based on my observations and reactions to the world that surrounds me informed by emotional experience.

I began my creative life as a photojournalist and quickly evolved into making documentary films and short personal art films. My process involves internal emotional dialogues that draw on reccuring themes such as trains as a symbol of motion, freedom and exploration. My mid-life creative adventures led me to working with glass. Glass has magic for me like no other material that I've experienced. I work utilizing a “free form” hot casting glass technique to create sculptural objects. I'm also strongly drawn to integrating copper that I have manipulated in a forge or with a plasma cutter to create shapes, symbols and textures. Recently I have evolved into making kiln formed objects as well as functional pieces.

Learn the basics of glass cutting, fusing (combining colors), and slumping (shaping glass) to create forms in this great introduction to the virtually limitless possibilities of glass art.
