Working with glass gives me the opportunity to explore different aspects of my creativity, pushing past the norm of kiln-formed structures. I begin with a sketch or idea then free my mind to let my heart express itself through my hands. Often, I am surprised and delighted by the result. I enjoy working with geometric shapes, often beginning with a straight line then distorting the shape by manipulating temperatures to add form and textures.
