Glass is my medium. I model it in the fire of a lampwork torch and fuse it in a kiln, and work it cold afterwards. I combine it with metal: silver for the jewelry pieces or copper for larger works.
Glass is a wonderful medium! It can transmit light or reflect it, can be transparent, translucent (like opals) or opaque. The colors and shapes it can take are seemingly endless. I just can’t get enough of it.
Inspiration comes naturally: repeating patterns in nature like cell structures, basic shapes, silhouettes, archetypes in myths, fairy tales, in ancient as well as modern art... balanced with a dash of humor.
