I love glass because of its translucency and its ability to reflect light, intensify colour and play with form and shadow. I also love glass because it’s a natural product made of sand – the colours consist of a variety of metals, minerals and oxides. Glass is fluid and malleable when hot, strong and static when cold and can be blown, layered, assembled, painted, cut, etched, fused and slumped.
Glass is not a static. It is not two dimensional like a painting and it’s not bound by its solidity like a rock because glass can be manipulated when hot. Cold again glass dances with light illuminating and intensifying each colour and plays through that dance with its surroundings and with multiple dimensions. Read more about glass.
After earning my BFA from OUC, where I majored in sculpture, I continued my studies with two glass artists. In order to be able to express myself with my art I am continuously learning and experimenting.
I paint, layer, cut, and assemble the best hand made art glass I can buy with the vision of bringing beauty, wonderment and luminescence into the dining and living room.
Functional art is a way to bring art into a household.
