Q & A
Q: Tell us a little about your art.
A: I work in glass using multiple techniques including fusing, off hand furnace blowing and lampworking, sometimes I combine all 3 techniques into one art piece.
Q: Why did you start doing what you do?
A: I started off as a painter but somehow was bitten by the glass bug, I am not even sure how I just got the drive to pursue glass. I began glass blowing, fusing and lampworking in 2001.
Q: What are your biggest influences?
Q: Tell us something most people don’t know about your process.
A: I make fused glass rectangles that I then roll up on to a blow pipe, close it up then blow it into a final shape.
