Artist’s Statement: “I was introduced to glass blowing at a young age and found it amazing. I couldn’t believe what an artist could accomplish with 2000-degree glass that you can only work with tools and never even touch. When I actually got the opportunity to work with glass it fit my meticulous personality perfectly. Glass is a very unforgiving medium that takes precise and meticulous steps to create the clean product I strive to make.
“In my latest work I’m trying to reproduce the feelings I get from the natural surroundings. Personally, I’m nervous to be in the ocean but it’s beauty is undeniable. I love the colors, reflections, and movements you get from the ocean and the creatures in it. Glass is the perfect material to represent this beauty because of it’s transparent qualities. Hopefully my art can bring that same natural beauty and movement into your home.”
