I work in sculptural cast glass and carved architectural glass.
My sculptural pieces are informed by opportunities for light manipulation. I use all aspects of the sculpture to achieve the desired effect: internal and external shapes and surfaces, angles, glass thickness, colors and densities. When natural lighting is available, time-of-day, season, and weather become factors in the appearance of each piece. These sculptures do not present a singular stagnant presence; they change with the light and viewing angle.
The clear carved glass is designed for doors and windows. Unlike traditional frosted, etched or carved glass, clear carved glass doesn’t block the view. The viewer either chooses to see the carving or look through to the scenery beyond. These pieces are usually informed by the local natural world.
