Artist Statement

I love working with glass because of the variety of colors that glass offers. Yet there is always the element of the unpredictable: what will happen in the firing processes? Colors often shift, edges flow, sparkles appear. Each piece is inherently unique and impossible to recreate exactly the same again.

My use of balanced elements in my functional fused glass pieces reflects my training and experience in graphic art.

My greatest joy is knowing that the functional objects I create bring beauty into everyday life.
