The works I present here represent a turning point, or change, in my studio practice. It wasn't planned and may not be permanent but it is happening right now in real time. This new, lighter work is simply a response to living with glass full time and repeatedly bearing witness to how amazing it is as a material. Usually these simple moments of clarity happen in the studio between myself and a random piece of material. Sometimes it is the part that was cut off, to be discarded, that is more interesting than a piece I spend a month or more refining.
Currently I focus on designing with glass and exploiting the
glassier properties of the material such as transparency, color, and gloss that I do not have a reputation for engaging in the past. Conceptually, I hope to provide viewers an escape from the daily happenings of our complex world as I realize that occasionally we need a pleasant view in order to escape some of the ugliness.
