1. Radiate – blown glass base with hand made flame-worked beads on wire armatures; 11 x 11 x 7 in.
2. Wave Rider – cane roll up blown glass base with hand made flame-worked beads on wire armatures; 11.5 x 11.5 x 10.5 in.
My work is whimsical, capturing my enthusiasm for life and a playfulness inspired from working with children. Most of my sculptures are non-representational, created by combing glass pieces that can each be appreciated individually for the diversity and harmony of the colors and patterns that inspire them.
Through my work, I want to help others find the joy and serenity that I feel when creating it. In life and my work, one can reflect the difficulties we face letting it determine our path or like light refracting through glass, we can change the direction and give back something beautiful.
