These are beautifully made large buttons. The picture is accurate.
Color and Light
Photography and glasswork, though vastly different from each other, allow me to play with color and light.
I began my love of photography when I opened my first Brownie Instamatic camera at age nine. Growing up we had a darkroom in our basement and I remember the magic of watching black and white photos emerge in the chemical baths. As an adult I spent a number of years as a professional photographer, photographing weddings, graduations, baptisms and other important events. It was always gratifying to be a part of a family's narrative. While I am no longer a wedding photographer I am rarely without my camera bag and enjoy capturing beautiful and interesting subjects.
I began my adventure with glass about ten years ago and I continue to study as there are never ending possibilities when playing with molten glass. I do my larger pieces at a studio near-by but have been fortunate to build my own glass studio in my home complete with a kiln for my button making. I have been a featured designer and maker of the Detroit Festival of Trees yearly ornament. In addition to my Etsy shop I have some of my glass items in boutiques in an around the Detroit area.
Starting an Etsy shop has enabled me to reach a much larger audience and it has been exciting to send my glass and photographs far and wide where they have found homes in many countries around the world.
