About

everyday glass re-imagined

Glass bottles are so ubiquitous in our society that to see them transformed into something else stops people in their tracks.
I enjoy the challenge of creating something out of common bottle glass that is functional, as well as intriguing and beautiful to the eye. Exploring a free source of raw material such as post-consumer bottle glass provides an endless array of forms and possibilities for transforming the ordinary and necessary glass bottle into an oddly modern, yet earthy, and even whimsical art object.
My “bentbottle” work possess a "lost in time" aesthetic, both ancient and modern, if not futuristic artifacts made from discarded everyday materials.

Thank you for stopping and getting to know me. Enjoy browsing my shop and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

    My mandate is to create. To stop you in your tracks, to provide that rush of discovering the new, never before seen, to plant a seed. So I collect and crush, melt and conjoin what is otherwise everyday waste, glass bottles, bent just for you.
