Glass

Because of the incredible way that glass plays with light, transparency, I'm drawn to it just like water. I'm enamored with how the fluid gestures we elicit from it while hot, are sustained once cooled. I've never pushed very hard to refine the glassblowing techniques that my mentors were inspiringly expert at, probably because I was so fascinated with letting the glass express its more liquid beauty. In some ways I feel compelled to let it be as liquid as possible.

As much as I love blowing glass, working with cold glass has also been of great fascination to me.  30 years ago I developed a gluing technique that I've tinkered with ever since, making very durable, flexible, fabric-like glass objects like my "breast plate" and cake & plate domes and more.
