I am fascinated by the whole process of fusing glass. Opening the kiln after the glass has been fired reveals a treasure. The glass has transitioned from a raw edged, cold feeling piece to something soft, sensuous an vibrantly colored.
Currently, I am happily exploring the many possibilities fused glass offers. As an avid collector of masks from different countries, it was a natural transition for me to create masks out of glass. Vividly colored and whimsical, the masks are eye catching additions to a room. My goal in designing “functional” glass pieces is to create useable items that are contemporary, harmonious and balanced. Creatively, I find each glass piece a new and stimulating adventure.
