Glass is beautiful simply by being glass. However you look at it, no work of art can transcend that natural beauty. I approach my work based on that premise. Whether it is burner work (beads and pipes), blown glass (my covered vessel series), or kiln work (cast objects), I have seen many changes in 30 years. Technique gives rise to form, and form begets technique. Rather than starting from something I want to express, I become absorbed in trying out new ideas and techniques. These last ten years I've been taken up with kiln work. How new "shapes" are generated through heat, gravity and tensile force is highly intriguing to me. The size limit for a piece imposed by the capacity of the kiln is my biggest problem at the moment. There's no ignoring the impact of size. I think I'll be working with this material without getting tired of it for some time to come...while continuing to worry about air pollution.
