Lots of descriptors fit my newest cast glass sculpture…cantilevered, precarious, a challenge, jade green. What it cannot call itself is “meant to be.” But six re-builds later, I call it pretty cool. Engineering disguised as aesthetics. And not easy to capture, so I’ll post a few extra photos shortly. Let me know what you think.Learn more →
In the emerging stages, my first cast glass wall sculpture was a whole new process for me. In wood, a wall sculpture is a familiar and enjoyable form. Yet, at first, it felt “weird” in wax. I had to become acclimated all over again to designing without the wood grain. There seemed now to be no point of beginning.

Additional thanks to the team at Thomas R. Riley Galleries for bringing us all together.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.

SOLD. Blue Tango is my largest glass piece to date at 2′-2″ tall. During layout, I envisioned a schematic representation of dance… tall and slender with open dynamic upward movement. This spiral glass sculpture emerged.
