About Cave Cricket

My shop features a variety of handmade glass and illustration items. I fell in love with the process of glassblowing in college and went on to earn a BFA in studio art in 2013. I've worked with many different materials but always come back to glass. I love the heat and intensity of the process as well as glass's fickle nature. I blow glass at a studio near my house in Murphysboro, IL and run a small kiln in my garage.

I've recently rekindled an interest in drawing and painting and have been working hard to produce items with these images. Much of this recent work is inspired by the natural landscape around the Shawnee National Forest of southern Illinois where I live.

    I'm a glass & illustration artist based in southern Illinois. I blow glass at a studio near my house, make prints in my garage & draw at my kitchen table. I love the fickle nature of glass and the relaxing rhythm of pen and ink drawing.
