It seems as though you wake from a dream one day to realize you have been involved in a journey with a material and a process for over half your life and still there is so much more to discover, uncover and be covered up by. One of the joys I have with this impressive material, glass, is that you are making something from nothing.

 

As with many artists from the 70s, I sought out non-traditional materials and encontered glass, which became my primary medium. The many daulities of nature and materials interest me, and I express this concern in my work by employing a figurative/narrative mode to document our time and envirnment. There is a classical/modern link in my work just as glass is a modern material in ancient history.
