Intense heat, luscious light, and erratic fluidity are a few fascinations I have with glass as a material. My latest two bodies of work are about exploiting glass in a surrealist sense that invites the viewer to question the material and what they are seeing.
The spring/spirals series flaunts how glass can bend, stretch and twist, a property many people think glass cannot achieve.
The Coulage series shows off the beauty of light, heat, and fluidity of glass in its molten state, a characteristic most people never experience.
Both series give the viewer a chance to see glass in a new way and think twice about how it acts, moves and functions, forming new questions to its potential and possibilities.
My goal in developing these series is to inspire curiosity by revealing the mystical properties of glass and shedding new light on the surprising characteristics and capabilities of glass.
