Video summary: Transformation in progress! It's so special to be creating an object from scratch with material that comes from the earth!

Life is Art and Art is Life!

I have always looked at the world around me, as well as the life I live, as art. I believe that if people remembered to look at the world with curiosity, they would see the beauty in everything. I am especially attuned to Mother Nature's artistry with the changing seasons as well as life cycle events.

I have been artistic since I was a child, drawing and painting both from what I saw as well as from my imagination. On a trip to Argentina, in 2014, to visit distant cousins, I was shown the work of the matriarch's glass art. That was the impetus for me to create my art using glass. I have not stopped and love this medium because of all the incredible colors, and the myriad of ways that I can create bold colorful glass wall hangings as well as colorful glass plates, platters, candlestick holders that are functional as well as works of art!

The other medium that I love which, is very different from glass is pottery. Using a slab of clay or throwing clay on the pottery wheel, from which I shape objects with my hands is very zen. While I enjoy using interesting glazes, I especially love being able to paint my flower designs or any designs on stoneware.

The magic of the kiln is used in both glass and pottery and it is always a delightful surprise to see the finished product! The interchangeability of these mediums means that I can translate my drawings or paintings into pottery or glass art and this is endlessly fascinating and fills me with freedom to express my vision.

My greatest joy is that my creations can be used and enjoyed by people as well as gifted for special occasions! I also love having relationships with my customers who share my art work, Etsy Shop, website, blog, videos with others! Commissions from customers gives me an opportunity to co-create with my ideal customers and use the colors that resonate with them. It gives me tremendous pleasure when my customers reflect back to me through an email testimonial with a photo of how they are using my art, or a video...and especially when they are able to convey to me how my art touches them. This is extremely inspiring and knowing that when someone purchases my art they have a piece of me that becomes part of their home and life!
