Glass is an incomparable material. There is nothing quite like its brilliance, texture and colors.
I don't know if I chose glass, or it chose me
Philosophically I attempt to celebrate Spirit in its manifestations, to reflect in some small way Nature's expression of our Universe. The atmosphere of creation surrounds and envelops us and it is ours from which to breathe deeply.
You don't blow glass. You whisper to it. You have to interact with glass. Simple beauty is difficult to achieve, because there is nowhere to hide, a flaw becomes so clearly evident.
Striving to capture in glass the beauty I see in nature, especially here in New England.
I can be technically proficient or more free to how the glass flows. I am always exploring new colors and styles and looking for where I can take it next. I see no end in sight.
Our pieces are lyrical, and often employ figurative imagery to explore concepts of displacement, longing and identity. By bringing art off the wall and into physical space we have opened the door to a whole new realm of expression.
My passion for the medium and my evolution as an artist inspired me to begin fusing and slumping glass while continuing to construct stained glass objects.
The “Inner Gardens” line was born during a particularly gloomy Vermont winter. She needed to create something that would add some color to the black, white and grey world outside. She started using glass shapes to form recognizable or imaginary flowers.
I love to make glass, anything, anytime, anyway possible. I make work that has secrets and surprises, almost hidden details that require the viewer to interact with the piece, turning it over in their hands then finding something beautiful.
