ARTIST STATEMENT

As a contemporary abstract glass artist, I create designs that evoke nature and intimate galactic objects, heat, and motion.  I layer thin silver, glass powders, and frit onto reactive glass or onto glass that is sulfur/selenium bearing.  An intricate fusing process is used to coalesce silver and the reactive glass in a high-firing kiln. This creates a variety of interesting reactions, such as streaks and halos that are subtle or dramatic, colorful or dark, and each will produce an intriguing and unique design. My focus toward graphic and galactical wanderlust initiated my current series “Halos.”   (Image, "Quasars II" 19")
