I recently purchased a Pearl 56 manufactured by Paragon Kilns and moved into a larger studio. It will be a fun challenge to learn what my intentions with glass designs are. I look forward to my continued growth as an artist to create decorative looking glass frames, windows, sconces, sculpture, mobiles and wall mounted fine art. I intend to incorporate stone slab & metal with the glass.

On a smaller scale I plan to dive into the art of enamelling- the art form of which is rare because of its challenging, particular process and the requirement of the utmost attention to detail. I am fortunate to be located near Merry-Lee Rae- one of the best enamellists in the world and have taken a class already and another this May.

NOW- Back to my current work posted here on Etsy.

The subdued lighting of the 4 watt 3” x 4” nightlight creates a relaxed vibe & warm ambiance. They make perfect gifts for anyone who appreciates a miniature work of art. They are found in beautiful homes everywhere- in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, hallways, poolrooms, wet bars, even closets.

My designs are an expression of things that make us happy. Lord knows we need to be reminded of those simple things. People like to complicate issues because I think it makes us feel more important. My belief is that most things are really simple and not complicated at all. Therefore, my artwork and my business model are very straightforward.

Sometimes I work in a deliberate way creating clean, modern pieces and other times I work in a faster, more abstract, free-formed & organic way. In either case, I strive for the end result to simply feel good, be elegant & colorful.

In 2004 I became a member of the San Francisco Street Artist program & dove into fusing glass full time. I put my heart into my business & into the creation of these finished pieces as you will find here in my Etsy boutique. Prior to that I spent 17 years in the corporate interiors business so I am motivated by fine, clean designs. I spent hours visiting galleries and museums in New York, San Francisco and abroad and have a clear concept of what I like to see and produce.

My glass jewelry is finished using 100% solid sterling silver, fine silver or 14K gold components. I also incorporate Swarovksi crystals, natural Turquoise, Labradorite & occassionally amber or volcanic stone. These high quality materials are a nice compliment to the glass.
