Now 33 doesn’t sound like a big number…until you see how big the bus was that dropped off 33 glass art collectors (members of Glass Alliance Northern California) at our home and my studio recently. See photos of their visit. We had a great time, tasty box lunch, and plenty of Q&A about my glass sculptures and wood art.Learn more →
For 19 days in June, four of my pieces are included in an invitational show, Sculptural Forms in Glass, at Winterowd Fine Art in Santa Fe. I’m very pleased to be joining five other glass artists in this show curated by gallery owner, Karla Winterowd – and debuting two of my newest pieces.Learn more →
I’m continually inspired by re-thinking (and thus always eager to try variations of) my own work. My #27 kiln-cast piece is an open design glass sculpture influenced by previous pieces — and by #26, which had failed at the foundry. Come take a look at the final result as well as a few progress photos.

T with ‘Tude: I have done mostly vertical pieces in the past. A few pieces went horizontal like Morph II and Levitation. I am always searching for new expressions in my designs. So I thought about combining both vertical and horizontal for this piece…mostly horizontal to get the main element up off the surface.

Seeing a vessel or two in someone’s home or in a gallery cannot begin to capture the essence or reality of Dale Chihuly’s work. A major Chihuly installation is a must see – and that’s just what blew my mind last month seeing the Garden & Glass Seattle Center.Learn more →
My first visit to the Chihuly Boathouse in Seattle was an exquisite experience. Heartwarming as well was a fund raiser being hosted at the Boathouse for the Seattle glass community who were gathering to support one of their own.Learn more →
Walking the grounds of Pilchuck recently, I thought about how some places have an energy, but this place has presence. You can absolutely feel it – the presence of the world’s best glass artists creating, collaborating, sharing and passing it on.Learn more →
Escape Velocity : I say if I’m not a little bit scared, I’m not doing good work. Well, Escape Velocity had me scared. It wasn’t until I got the wax form down to 9 lbs that it started to “make it.” Somehow it’s the scary part that really drives me.
