Glass is an extremely interesting material, as it simultaneously possesses both interior space and exterior form. The theme of my work is "time." This includes the shapes and spaces generated through time. The technique I use is casting, which I consider analogous to sculpting, because it is a free-form process of artistic expression. Casting is a process through which glass as a material is shaped by time and consciousness.
