About the Instructor
I have been working in glass since 2006 when I created my first stained glass panel and became completely enamored of the material and process. Continuing my explorations in glass and desiring more freedom in design, I quickly moved on to kiln-forming, also known as fused glass or warm glass. I enjoy working with the myriad choices of color, transparency, and texture to create my unique and cheerful pieces. My goal for each piece is that it evokes a sense of joy, whimsy, and wonder in the viewer, feeling that the glass itself is the perfect medium to convey this lightness of spirit. From the initial concept, to cutting, nipping, and crushing the sheet glass into design elements, sometimes painting with glass enamels to enhance the imagery, through the kiln-firing and final cold-working, I take joy in the creation process.
