Art has always been a powerful and integral part of my life. Over thirty years ago, I began working in traditional stained glass. A love of experimentation and a desire to shape and design glass in new ways led me to my passion – kiln formed glass.
Kiln formed glass is commonly referred to as fused glass or warm glass. In artistic glass, stained glass is known as "cold glass", kiln formed glass as "warm glass" and blown glass as "hot glass".
I love the technical challenge and complexity of the medium; heating glass to its molten form and then ever so slowly back to a solid. Preserving the look of fluid, moving glass is what I strive to maintain in my work.
