My first contact with glassblowing was at KentStateUniversity in the mid-seventies. I have always been interested in texture and pattern, and had been exploring batik and fabric-dyeing techniques. I took my first glassblowing class on a whim, as an elective, and was instantly hooked. I’ve been blowing glass ever since.
My fascination with the intricate patterns of the natural world and my love of color are reflected in my work. I work in a series format that allows my ideas to evolve slowly as I explore the way glass of different colors interacts. Although a specific reference to nature is often intended, I enjoy the fact that people form their own interpretations. What is important is to capture the viewer’s imagination.
Steve and I have been husband and wife, as well as business partners, for over 25 years. After graduating from RIT School for American Crafts, I worked in porcelain for many years, handbuilding vessels and wall pieces. As time passed, however, I became more and more interested in glass as a medium. After completing a large body of work in cast glass, I am currently working with Steve on our Carved One of a Kind pieces. Drawings of organic elements found in the natural world form the foundation of my designs, which I then translate into resist patterns. I am enjoying the challenge of working on these highly-detailed, intricate pieces.
