Glass Sculpture and Wood Art

If I’m not a little bit scared while creating my glass sculptures or wood art, I’m not growing. That’s my design philosophy. Also, if I’m not a little bit scared, I’m not doing good art! That’s not a philosophy — that’s my reality!

Each piece is a challenge I set up for myself. Make it difficult. Stretch my abilities. Push the limits of the materials and the process. I understand that’s not a normal business philosophy, which instead holds that things should be made simple, smooth and predictable.

But then my work is sculpture. And, as I see it, my job is to run counter to the norm and to the known.

“Scary” challenges are also my joy…and have been from my first wood sculpture and turning.  Then I “crossed over” into glass art.  So, I invite you to cross over as well and browse both sides of my sculptural world.
