I have worked with glass for over thirty years, drawn to the process of shaping molten glass with breath, gravity, and simple tools. I rely on five thousand years of traditions, techniques and forms for inspiration. I use a variety of techniques including sculpting, blowing, cane drawing, and painting with glass enamels.
