I love Color! The balance of color, the splash of color, how color makes you feel inside. I also love everything about the ocean and its seeming paradoxes. The unpredictability that storms bring. The calm feeling I get when I sit and watch the waves come in rhythmic patterns that are predictable and the rise and fall of the tides. The waves are a metaphor for me….no matter how stormy things become, if I just ride the waves, eventually everything will be fine. My art is all about riding the waves of emotion and the colors of life that bring those emotions to a place of beauty and creativity.
All of the pieces in my collection are made from hand cut pieces of glass that are fired in my kiln. Most pieces are fired 3 times before they are considered complete and ready. Some pieces also include silver metal clay as part of the piece. I shape and cut the silver metal clay and it too, gets fired in the kiln once.
