My primary body of work stemmed from ideas revolved around water quality issues. Over time I discovered that glass is a perfect medium to represent water almost as if it is capturing a moment in time like a sculptural photograph. Recently I am designing a line of glassware and vessels shaped from rocks collected from different bodies of water. The idea is for people to drink, hold, interact but most of all to think about their relationship and experiences with their favorite natural location.

Tell us how your work is made.
Each vessel or sculpture begins from gathering glass out of a furnace at about 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Every piece is crafted by hand utilizing ancient techniques with modern design. My latest series of glass vessels are sculpted by river rocks collected from specific locations.
