About the Artist
“I am a fan of stories, fables, parables, allegory, and soliloquy, I appreciate the quest, the subtle roles and meaning within the story. There is also a transformative nature to story telling, we take a word or image and emblazon it, infusing it with meaning, giving each element context. The magic happens in the audience, each person having the ability to personalize, and make a story our own. While my imagery might be representational, the elements are meant as concepts, deposits which are distilled, and formed into allegorical objects.
Working alone, in my studio, my primary tools are torches, that range from large to small. Each glass sculpture is built, first the internal structure and then one by one elements are fashioned and added to the framework. Pieces can take weeks or months to complete.”
