Of the many media and processes which can be used to create, I have always been attracted to glass and its potential.  Initially working with stain glass, I became drawn to the dynamic nature of the blowing process which seemed to better suit my nature and my vision.

I have a strong preference for objects of a personal scale and with potential utility.  A vessel with a lid or stopper has always been of most interest.  Color and pattern are also important, either a single color highlighting form or a more complex mixture to create patterns.

I am proud of the final product but the actual process of creation is what I find most satisfying.
