I don't consider my work to be working with glass. It is working with light, connecting my heart and soul. The best work I can do is to capture a fleeting image that arises, apply my feelings and interest, and create a form from that. I also believe that the true nature of my work is to link that which one sees internally with external objects. How everything I make is perceived depends on the feelings, interests, and sometimes the critical mind of those who see or touch my work, and I want it to be ambiguous enough and free enough to allow different perceptions.
