I have always
been mesmerized by glass. Growing up in a Victorian house with
stained-glass windows, I marveled at how glass alters light, with
multi-colored sun puddles filling my childhood spaces. It was those
memories that drew me to later work in stained-glass.
As a science
major, I love the liquid qualities of a medium we think of as a
solid. Through my experience as a potter, I appreciate the
alchemical effects of heat on both clay and glazes (glass). My
incursion into fused and cast art glass is the culmination of my
enjoyment of working with both stained-glass and pottery, finding
this exciting new medium with which to work.
