Jewelry, Glass Arts, Metal Arts
From the moment I touched glass to make my first piece of fused glass art, I knew I had found a medium that truly spoke to me. The controlled process of constructing a piece combined with the surprising effect that the firing produced just felt right to me. Glass is like a child…at times unpredictable, but always delightful. Because of the way that glass heats, expands, and melts, each firing can produce unique and unexpected results.
My designs take advantage of the texture, color, and dimension that can be produced with layers of glass. I see the joy that people feel when they see the array of colors in front of them.
That love of color then drove me to create chainmail jewelry that could coordinate with my fused glass jewelry. I enjoy seeing how the different colors work together in those pieces.
I feel very lucky to have found an artistic outlet that gives me such pleasure. I hope that you will share that pleasure each time you wear or use one of my creations. Your friends will be asking, “Where did you get that? I want one too!”
