About

Glass is my everything!

I first saw a glassblower at the historical re-enactionment of colonial Jamestown, Virginia, at age 3, and was taken with it. I took my first glassblowing workshop after graduating from art college, and loved making my first paperweight in that class. While working as an art teacher for the public schools, I took as many glass classes as I could squeeze into my schedule: mosaics, kilnformed glass, glassblowing, flameworking. Eventually, I realized the torch is the main thing I enjoy. I love sculptural work, as well as painterly image work, as well as joyful works of pure color/patterns. Currently, I am learning new techniques from written and video tutorials, and I don't have words for how much I am enjoying this. I usually have more ideas for making things than there are hours in the day. I think I find glass so wonderfully apt because of its vivid colors and because it can be either a beautiful colorful form or a painting.

    Learned glassmaking from weekend/evening and summer classes in Chicago, Michigan, New York and North Carolina. Love the torch the most, also do some kiln.
