I am drawn to the repetitive yet seemingly random structures of the natural world, as well as the beauty to be found in oxidation and decay. The glass traps light in captured bubbles, and evokes a sensation of movement in a palette of natural oxides. Metals embedded in glass erode and break up in the heat of the kiln, shifting in color and shape. Enamels on metal interact with heat and with each other, often yielding moments of unexpected beauty.
I use the particular characteristics of window glass and scrap metals to my advantage, to achieve unique alchemies. My techniques lend an organic flow and unique movement to the mediums.
