2017 booth #.

My work consists of blown glass characterized by vivid colors in facetted forms.

Each piece is worked on a blow pipe out of a furnace to create the color patterns and shapes. When cool I grind the glass to shape, sandblast and acid etch the frosted parts, and polish the facets to open up the interiors of each piece.

I have been working in glass since college in the seventies. I enjoy glass because you have to plan the work before you make it but you also have to see what you have before you and deal with that. Glasswork is very hands on and very thoughtful, both aspects that I appreciate.
