Happy New Year!!!
"In everything I do in life I believe in challenging the status quo by thinking, living, and exploring life outside the 'traditional' box. Life never follows a straight line. and is full of new challenges."
My work evolves from images and experiences I have from living close to nature on a lake.
I then develop my designs in glass or many other mediums.
Enameling requires many steps and produces fabulous colors and depth on metal.
My glass work, is then is cold worked and often put back into the kiln(s).
It takes a great deal of time and several long fusing schedules, that. Each fusing time can be from 24 hours or up to 5 days long.
Some work can requires up to 6 different fusing/cold working steps.
This is done with wet glass saws, and diamond flat laps, sandblasting or hand finishing.
You can read my blogs to learn fo learn more about how this happens.
Each work conveys my artistic reflection, and is signed and one of a kind.
I have several new glass vessels that I am producing as I ramp back up after a knee replacement. These are interpretations developed from my photography.
