Artist’s Statement: I design and make all of my kiln formed glass pieces in my home studio using large sheets of hand cut glass as well as crushed glass frit. My ideas come from the beauty of nature that surrounds us my husbands photography and our travels. You will see a variety of pieces from plates and bowls to traditional scenes and contemporary art to hang or display in stands. Depending on the desired effect I layer and arrange the glass and use multiple firings to create visual depth. Controlling temperature and time in the kiln allows pieces to be smooth have soft or strong texture. In order to keep my designs current and interesting I am constantly learning and challenging myself to try new techniques.Depending on complexity pieces can take from 3 days to weeks to make. Its very gratifying to delight my customer with a beautiful piece of art.
