Awakening, re-awakened. Taking a higher than usual risk, I re-sculpted the original version of this finished cast glass piece. Now that it’s completed and I’ve relaxed…I’m pleased with the outcome.
Midnight Moves: The most difficult sculptural glass I’ve completed to date. And the most difficult to cast. And yet, the degree of difficulty plays an integral role in the moodiness and depth created by the dark orange red glass.

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.

Red Shift: On previous works, I had been noticing hints of shapes and colors being projected onto one side of the piece by design structures on the other side of the piece. With Red Shift, I intentionally planned for that occurrence and chose a glass that does dramatic color shifts depending on the thickness.

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.
