As an artist and science educator, I create work that advocates for the health of our planet and its inhabitants. I focus the heat of my commitment, as well as my kilns and torches, to transform glass and steel into sculpture related to the effects of our behavior on the environment.
For interior display, I cast large glass chunks in molds to achieve densely colored labyrinths with bold edges. For exhibit in public areas, ¼” glass sheets cut to fit metal shapes are slumped over fiber molds to emboss narrative designs on the back of the panels. Graceful steel frameworks support both styles of glass.
Whether creating for indoor or outdoor display, I design my work to first seduce viewers with its beauty. A closer look engages them in important social and environmental issues in order to inspire actions that will help solve our problems while we still can.
