I combine kiln-formed and flame-formed glass to make one-of-a-kind, functional and/or sculptural art. I turned to art as a form of therapy and self-expression when chronic illness limited my life. Glass has the ability to go into the flame or the kiln and heal itself, and working with glass has a similar healing power for me. When I am mesmerized by molten glass on my torch or finding the perfect colors, patterns and textures for a fused piece, it distracts from pain and brings only pleasure (despite the burns and cuts that go hand-in-hand with working with glass!). The techniques I use range from lampwork to powder printing.
