I love the relationship of fused and lampworked glass. Lampworked glass, also referred to as flameworked glass, is
created tabletop in a torch, then stabilized, (annealed) in the kiln.
Fused glass is created primarily outside the kiln, then worked into its final rendition through single or multiple firings within the kiln, where the artist must understand the science, but leave open to chance, a final outcome.
My work is heavily influenced by the experiential encounters of what is happening around me. I love my garden! It is an ongoing source of wonder in its constant evolution. The plants, the birds, the bees, and my darling hens offer a world of inspiration.
I also love the sea, and spend as much time snorkeling and scuba
diving as vacation allows, so sometimes just it is simply the colors I see in the coral that rock
my world, and sometimes it is the actual animal that dictates the outcome of my work.
