I cut multiple pieces of dicroic glass and layer mosaic them.I then fuse and slump it into custom molds. I then make a glass “frame” and mount the into a shadowbox effect to create one of a kind work.

I am a Glassblower/lamp worker. I use borocilicate glass, gold, silver, and opals. I make intricate glass orbs that contain dramatic optical illusion that transports the viewer away from reality.

I work in clay because it allows me to focus on form and function as well as the decorative surface. I love to incorporate bright color and texture to help tell an abstract visual story.

As a poet and sculptor I hand sculpt in both language and stoneware ceramic. All work is high fired. All the writing you see is my own original poetry, quips, and wordplay.
