SOFA Chicago 2009

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


On 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.

But I’ve gotten ahead of myself. Opening Night of SOFA was a grand opportunity for Gaye and I to celebrate the Chicago unveiling of my newest major sculpture, Charybdis, which had made its original debut earlier in the year at SOFA WEST Santa Fe.


A special treat during SOFA was a visit by Tori, my daughter, and her husband Marc. It’s wonderful to have such loving groupies!
