I am most interested in color, especially color relationships in the designs I create. In my glass work, which I make at my studio up on a hill in the woods of Southern Vermont, I utilize various methods of color application. All of this coloration seen in the objects I make is done with glass, colored glass, using various methods developed over the centuries of the history of glass making that I have applied to my contemporary designs. Since molten glass is such an unforgiving and challenging substance to tame and manipulate, it is a continual learning process for anyone who chooses to utilize it as a medium. I consider the pieces I make to be documents along the way of a (hopefully) life-long journey of developing the necessary skills and patience one needs in order to create with this captivating and mesmerizing molten material.
