I find inspiration in the palette of the outdoors and often try to emulate this in glass. I enjoy the medium itself and the act of working with glass in its natural state. In its molten form, glass loses its fragility and becomes something I can control. I bring it to life by shaping, stretching, and blowing it. New colors are constantly emerging and the thrill of working new colors or new techniques keeps me coming back for more. When creating a work, I strive to use techniques that will foster a sense of awe in those who view my art.
