Glass is a preferred medium among my artistic expressions - it is innately light in motion
to me. Just as nearly every living thing pursues the light and reacts to its
movement, so does the eye of the artist.
This movement of light fascinates and seduces me, whether it is expressed figuratively in
pieces where shimmering and iridescent layers of color and shadow are put into motion as
the light passes through them, or in the more abstract pieces which seek to depict the
energy of light in motion, or opaque work done in the classic mosaic style.
My work is driven by a fascination with the
aspects of fire and ice inherent in fused glass. The flame encounters the icy sheet of raw
glass and makes it yield its crystalline treasure. The glass enters the kiln and is
transformed. A new light is reborn in the finished piece - almost a microcosm of creation.
It is an intense transition that amazes and delights me. The possibilities of expression
through glass are endless and challenging.
