Artist Statement

I am self-taught in the field of kiln forming and cold working glass.  Fusing glass as a medium can be challenging, frustrating and yet very fulfilling.  Glass reminds me of life. So beautiful and so fragile.  I love the fact that combining different materials with silica sand then heated to a couple thousand degrees can create such a functional material with such an array of colors that can be manipulated by heat to create almost any form imaginable to man.
