The journey of working with glass has been my teacher since 1967 in Toledo, Ohio. I enjoy the meditation of blowing glass and the creative challenge of design and execution of my sculptures.


In my blown glass work, I explore visual dimensions of massive glass and reflective interiors. I try to bring out the pure beauty of the essence of glass in my designs using transparent color and trapped air bubbles that captivate the fluidity of molten glass.


I shape and texture the molten material with hand tools to create an optically transformed piece. Another approach I take is to cut, engrave, and assemble cold glass elements into contemporary sculptures playing with concepts of balance, multi-dimensions and transformation.
