Point of Rupture

Through the exploration and exploitation of the multitude of possibilities that glass offers, I approach issues of perplexity and uncertainty in my work. My investigations are based on several bodies of work that inform and influence each other.
The glass is able to take on many manifestations, which I manipulate for physical and emotional expression. I am searching for the tension between what is experienced as attractive and repulsive.
By using centuries of glass making traditions I endeavor to create my own perspective in a contemporary context.
