GLASS = Light, Seduction, and Magical Rainbows
As a child, I was fascinated by the magic of glass. The rainbows that swam across the floors of my home created by sunlight streaming through the beveled glass doors and windows. I loved the way a pane of glass was transformed into a drawing surface on cold or wet days. I was awed and amused by the deception of reality when looking through the bottom of an empty drinking glass.
Some years ago, I realized I would not be able to fulfill my creative needs without following the seduction and mystery caused by the effect of light and glass. I had to find a way to use glass in my work and to continue the continuity and growth of my expression. After working with many of the disciplines of glass, I have chosen to concentrate on casting. I wanted a challenge to the process of my work. With casting there is so much more than just “making art” — the process is quite complicated and involves many technical aspects to make it happen. I want, I need, I must study to further develop the skills and controls of casting glass.
My ultimate goal is to be able to use the process of cast glass to create forms that are unique to me, express my artistic thoughts, and also create a little magic.
