As you come down Grubb Street to Glass Axis, you’ll see that our parking lot is the last driveway on the left before Town Street. Please park in the parking lot and come into Glass Axis. Turn left and go down the hallway to find my studio; it will be the last studio on the left. Once you arrive you will find samples of my cast glass work from the Mona Lisa, a glass teddy bear and the Divided States in glass. You will see how I assemble my work as well as the various molds I use. While you’re in Franklinton, be sure to visit Mary Barczak, Chris Tennant and the artists at both 400 W. Rich and Chromedge Studios.

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