My former job as a glass caster greatly influenced my approach and work in kiln formed glass. I am not interested in making something out of glass, but rather my interests revolve around the behavior, characteristics, and the language of the material. Through an iterative process of unmaking and remaking, it is the rhythms, patterns, and formations that become the emphasis.
