Handcrafted glass art and fine woods


I make all my work in a small glass studio and wood shop at my home in Oakland, CA. I use a flameworking torch to melt and shape borosilicate glass in a spectrum of colors and anneal all pieces in a glassworking kiln. I also have a small array of fine woodworking tools to help me create works that either stand on their own or complement my glass art. I draw my inspiration from the natural world - space, ocean, flora, and fauna - and often from the whimsical depths of my own mind. I hope you enjoy these creations as much as I have enjoyed making them.

I chose the name “Mapleseed” to honor the beautiful Japanese maple tree that grows outside my studio. As I was first setting up my glass working space, this tree was dropping it’s purple red seeds all around. My glass studio was itself just a seed, but it is growing more beautiful each day.

Additional policies and FAQs

I am happy to consider custom orders for pieces that reflect particular a size, style, or color palette. I cannot accommodate extremely specific requests, however - the glass will do its own thing under the flame and may not always turn out as expected. Custom orders will naturally take several days to complete. Please contact me and we can discus details and timing.


I keep a record of sales for my own inventory and bookkeeping needs. I never share any information with other parties.
