An unexpected encounter at SOFA Chicago 2009 ultimately leads to my cross-over from wood art to sculptural glass

first-bornOn Saturday night in Chicago, a glass collector “crossed over” and purchased his first wood sculpture. I’m honored that my cedar sculpture, First Born, was his choice.

A very unexpected outcome was that within two months, I, too, “crossed over” and began working in sculptural cast glass with the encouragement of this collector.
