The glass’ raw brilliance and color are primary inspirations in my work. The deeper I explore the technical side of working with glass, the more it leaves me in awe at the range of possibilities for something new and beautiful to emerge. Building upon millennia-long tradition of stained glass art, I am pushing the contemporary warm glass process to evolve beyond traditional imagery and conventional construction methods by utilizing both time-proven as well as innovative contemporary glass forming and painting techniques in my work. I find that combining modern and traditional, play and purpose, makes the seemingly conflicting entities sing together in harmony.
