I create fused glass art that is both functional and decorative. I am drawn to the ethereal, fluid and translucent qualities of glass, and the opportunity glass provides to play with color and spatial relationships. Creating glass art provides me with an alternative form of expression from my training as an engineer, yet it is complimentary with my understanding of entropy, order, and the physics of molten glass. My designs originate from observed geometries of natural and manufactured objects. I express themes from music, literature, and science in my glass, with some deliberately planned and others completely spontaneous.
