I began blowing glass at Washington U in St Louis in 2001.  Enrollment in the first class was fluke. Before the first class began, I flipped thru a book of Venetian glass patterns.  I was enthralled.  I could not stop thinking about these patterns. I soon realized I had an uphill battle controlling the lines for the desired effect. With a patient and meticulous approach, I study both the material and the ways my body moves. Growing these understandings are integral to my awareness about what I can and cannot (or maybe don’t want to) control.

The forms I make are containers for bold and hopefully
mesmerizing patterns. Using traditional Italian and Swedish techniques, each piece is one of a kind and can not be replicated. The themes and colors can certainly be revisited and reinterpreted. 

I moved from St Louis to Spruce Pine NC in 2014. I work in a
studio in Bakersville NC with my best friend and partner Amber
Marshall. You can view her modern sculptures at AmberMarshallGlass.com
