On a previous sculpture, I began working with the idea of colliding lines. Attempting to create the illusion of one line passing through another, it was a difficult visual element to pull off. I love the translucent marine blue glass.

Firth of Forth

Tunneling in any medium is a difficult and challenging proposition. I used a wood boring bit with an electric drill and quickly learned that I must go very slowly or the frictional heat of the drill melted the wax – and then fused the drill in place. Fun! The piece is named in honor of my Mother who was born in Scotland not far from Firth of Forth.

Mystic Light

Engineering plays a central role in my designs. Not very romantic, I know, but the undulating and double back curves are planned engineering elements designed to support things like cantilevers. I love cantilevers, as you’ll notice, when you take a look at Mystic Light.

Second First

My very first glass sculpture! The creation process was entirely unfamiliar to me…most especially sanding wax seemed perverse. The words sandpaper and wax simply do not belong together! My learning curve was bent backwards.
