Artist Statement

Glass is both subject and object in my work, and its chemical and physical properties fascinate me. It is fluid whilst unyielding, delicate whilst impenetrable. Glass can transform from liquid to solid in an instant and still retain the illusion of movement.
My process consists of making finely crafted glass beads melted with a torch according to traditional Italian methods. Although the techniques I use are ancient, their application is contemporary, and I am constantly experimenting with the nature and chemistry of glass.
