Statement

I want to suspend color in mid-air. I have been fascinated with glass for over 16 years and I decided to work with glass when I saw how color and light interact in glass. My bowls have layers of transparent colors that let light pass through them, changing their intensity and allowing their vibrant colors to merge together. Designing and combining these colors in the glass blowing studio is the highlight of the process. My cast glass bubble wrap pieces also illustrate my interest in color and light.

Demonstration

I will give tours of Glass Axis and explain what is happening in the glass blowing studio area.
