I am a hot glass flame worker, an instructor and the Director of the flameshop at Sonoran Glass School. Along with creating a strong and fundamental curriculum for students to learn about flameworking glass, I am also creating work that is sculptural art that is clean, bold and fun.
In My new body of work I am exploring the hollow form. How it moves in the warm bath of a soft flame, and where it ends up.I began exploring lampworked glass in 1985. After much trial and error, left the medium until 1996 where I continue to use glass as my main medium of expression. In the year 2000, I completed my testing and developed a unique technique for flame worked glass and applying vitreous enamels. This technique has afforded me to use my background as a painter on and in glass. My work is drawn from urban life. The people, the places, and the soul of the urban traveler.
