I employ hot blown glass to create one of a kind works. The spontaneity of glassblowing are seductive qualities. I want to communicate that dynamic experience to my audience. My techniques are based in medieval and renaissance glass. The bit applications and trails are simultaneously painterly and sculptural. Often i want my work to be viewed as still moving, potentially able to walk off the pedestal if it so wished.
