I am sketching and mark-making with glass, hand pulling glass threads over a torch and then manipulating them again with heat to make shapes.  I rarely have a preconceived idea of what the piece will look like when I finish.  I am exploring.

 

I have chosen to use minimal color in this work but the colors I have used are reactive with each other, that is, they form a subtle interactive border due to the oxides in the glass. 

 

My inspiration comes from the formal elements of line, tone, shape and texture.  I am a designer at heart, finding great satisfaction in the nuances of line, in conceiving and organizing a visual composition.
