As an Artist my interests are split between functional glass art work, and jewelry. Glass transmits and reflects light as no other material can do. My “canvas”, is a sheet of glass. I create textures, organic patterns and images in glass using cut, crushed and powdered glass. The glass is then fused together to make one solid piece. My work can be serious, traditional, whimsical, or abstract.
I have recently introduced Glass Fused on copper, “enameling”, into my repertoire. It is amazing how one copper square or a collage can complete a work. No two pieces are ever the same, making the possibilities infinite. You’ll also find enameled jewelry on this site.
Adding metal clays to fusing glass have been a creative experience. Many times small piece of glass can bring out the best qualities in metals.
