“I’ve always been fascinated by the essential idea of glass, the change from liquid to solid. And the freedom of the artist, in the middle of that flow, to work her influence on the final form, to pull an abstract vision into something of tangible beauty, is fabulous. Since I also love being on the water—ocean, river, lake, mud puddle—it amuses me to create pieces that hark back to that liquid: stable, but still full of motion. And so my work is alive with bubbles and waves, sea form and movement.
“When I tool my first glassblowing class 6 years ago, my questions were simple: How? Why? What makes me think I can do this? I’ve figured out some of the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ and have moved on to what has become my new favorite question: What if? The answers to that question can be endlessly appealing. With each new piece, I get to share and celebrate that answer.”
