Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My creative process focuses on strategic experimentation and play to explore new possibilities in kilnformed glass. I am especially inspired to create a more sustainable art practice to shrink my carbon footprint and look for ways to incorporate recycled glass into my work. My work explores relationships with our environment. In particular, how our interactions with an object can influence mindfulness the same way our interactions with our environment can.
