I have been working to produce an artistic expression using glass that has never been seen before. I have worked with a combination of casting, blowing and cutting techniques, adding my own unique touches to create a new form of expression that is entirely my own. Everything, as I see it, has many faces besides the superficial one that we see ordinarily, and limitless depth. We may only be able to see down to the structural or cellular level, but I envision these levels to lead deeper and deeper to more subtle levels. To express my image of this overlapping I strive to utilize to the best effect the interior space of the glass, and its properties of glare and reflection.
