Glass is my medium. Kiln forming is my passion.
The emphasis in my studio is on creativity and innovation.
Creating one of a kind glass art for over 18 years, I am an abstract glass artist, with interest in vessels, dichroic jewelry, fritography, collage and sculpture, inspired by my road trips and nature. My goal for 2019 is 30 ocean scenes, all created in glass.
Glass has given me a chance to express creatively with my hands. My original pieces use layering techniques, and incorporate special effects with transmitted and reflected light. I’m able to share my love for nature, water, and chickens in glass. It’s my pleasure to be able to share with you the natural beauty I see around me.
There are many forms of glass art. Kiln formed glass is one of them.
The basic idea behind kiln formed glass is that art objects can be created by melting glass in a kiln. Glass is heat-processed in a kiln at temperatures ranging from 1200 degrees to over 1900 degrees. Two or more pieces of glass are placed in the kiln and heated until they fuse together into a single piece. Glass is placed over a mold and heated until it slumps into (or drapes over) the shape. Frequently the glass being slumped has design elements already fused to it. Hours of cold-working (grind, Dremel, polish) go into each piece between each firing.
