Just as we all rely on the Earth’s energy and sunlight, my glass pieces rely on and are the Earth’s energy and sunlight expressed in an original way. Created from sand, wood ash, colored by various metals and such, my pieces are a collaboration between nature and myself in true alchemy. My pieces range from neutral and organic with a pop of color to something geometric or fluid, ambiguous or explicit, edgey or smooth always with a focus on quality and detail. I’ve been amassing glass designs in notebooks since before creating my 1st piece and have slowly been revisiting and redesigning to eventually see into fruition. Stained glass is my passion along with foraging/ spending time in nature, family and self expression. My goal is to translate everything I am and love into my pieces and to share that through either teaching, inspiring others to create, or producing pieces for others to love and enjoy.
