Description

“I have been creating a series of Frosted Vessels which convey the sense of gesture which I feel is so inherent in hot glass. Some of the things I make are concerned with seeing the world in a different light. In an age of electronic media, when we are being bombarded by images and being asked to accept them as reality, it seems important for artists to present alternatives to accepted ways of seeing. Juxtaposing familiar images to create new ones, or presenting familiar objects in a different context are two approaches to this. They are also basic ingredients in humor, and I hope that the enjoyment I have with my work can carry over to the viewer.”

I was originally attracted to hot glass because of its liquid qualities and sense of immediacy. I have always tried to capture some of the elegance, fluidity, gesture, and whimsy which I feel are inherent properties of glass. I formulate many of my own glass colors, and often use layers of different colors within each piece to create subtle shading or contrast. The approaches I use are eclectic and personal at the same time -- sort of a blend of Late Venetian and Early Neurotic.
