2019 booth #84

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.

2018 booth #7B

I print my digitally captured photos using archival inks and paper, and then transfer the image onto a wood panel that I have built using only reclaimed wood. The image melts into the wood and cracks, giving it an aged appearance. I intend my artwork to feel nostalgic and comfortable for the viewer.
