To me, making something is a matter of creativity and method. It is a never-ending effort to give form to glass's various potentialities. You add energy to a material, and use various methods in a systematic way to get that physiological "something" within the material to manifest. This is a process of drawing out the strengths of the material and giving form to it. Melted glass or hardened glass will take on different appearances with the application of a variety of artistic methods and techniques. That is what I explore. I am the intermediary between the latent and the developed image.
