Glass

When I touch glass, I love the feel of the smooth surface texture.  I got my start in fused glass by taking a class and I was hooked.  I found that I was fascinated by the way that glass moves in the kiln and how the outcome is so much more vibrant and interesting than just the pieces themselves.  I have been inspired by the clean lines and simplicity of the Arts and Crafts movement and, with a background in mathematics. I find geometric shapes very pleasing. Working in fused glass has changed my idea of what it means to be an artist.

Fused glass is created by firing a collection of small pieces together to make a sheet or “full fuse” and then firing a second time to create a shape or “slump fuse.”  I love drawing lines with very thin rods of glass known as stringers. I’m always delighted at how the small parts put together have a surprising result. This is a case where truly the sum is greater than the parts.
