Shadows and texture. Transparency and fluidity. Color and light. These are the qualities of kiln-fired glass that inspire my art. Using sheets of clear and colored glass and finely crushed powdered glass, I develop intimate landscapes and fire them at high temperatures in a kiln. Kiln-fired glass provides for limitless exploration, combined with the uncertainty of the heat to create magical floating images. A background in watercolor painting inspires my approach. I use dozens of colors of powdered glass, carefully sifting color upon color to create my complex images. Each art glass piece is fired between 10 and 12 times and will spend up to 300 hours or more in the kiln. With this technique, I develop unique art pieces filled with multifaceted, layered images and shimmering light. To view my currently available work, click here.
