Glass has an uncanny way of reflecting the transparency and vulnerability found in humanity and nature; to work successfully with it, one must follow glass where it wants to go.
Like people, glass is transparent, fragile, and prone to having a mind of its own. When I use the kiln to form glass, it is an act of surrender. In contrast, steel is hardy, warm, workable. It’s easy to control and an ultimate support system. I find the contradiction irresistible and my sculptures evolve from a ‘conversation’ between the two. I don’t tell people what things mean, but rather emphasize light and translucency to stir a viewer’s curiosity and encourage the audience to find a personal narrative of their own.
