I have been intrigued by the formation of glass and its amorphous state for a long time. The idea that glass is in transition even in its brittle state, somehow, calms me. I relate it to life as always being in motion – even during the most seemingly stuck moments.
I tend to begin my pieces with color exploration. My inspiration materializes from how a piece may be interpreted by others – therapeutically or energetically. Light and reflection also play a key role in creating my pieces and is essential to my process. For example, my pieces may be seen completely different at night than during the day.
I find comfort in that there is no finality to a finished piece that I may decide later to chop up, re-melt, recycle or rearrange. With an infinite lifespan, glass allows limitless possibilities for regeneration.
