Full Artist's statement
As an artist and a scientist, I look at glass’ duality: an amazing mysterious material that responds to gravity and variations of heat – sometimes predicable, sometimes not. As I’ve explored the behavior of glass, I’ve learned that my pieces are a collaboration -- my kiln and I both do our part. Sometimes, we don’t agree on the final form; then I explore the secrets that allow me to create my vision. It’s an exciting journey.
