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?

A:  Nature, mostly the ocean.

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.

Q: Where would you like to go next?

A:  I want to continue to grow as a glass artist, I want to travel and continue learning from glass masters and work with other glass artists
