I use a variety of glass transformation techniques in my work. Glass can be cut, ground to shape, molded, kiln fused, flame sculpted, and transformed to look similar to watercolor. Inspiration comes from all around me, but mostly I just like to play and try new things. Of late my attention has turned to painting with glass to create landscapes, still life, and portraits of animals, people and flowers. I've been taking classes from a Master in the glass art field, Narcissus Quagliata. He has inspired me to look and think about art, and glass art in particular, in ways I never knew were possible. I think this has helped bring my own art to a new level.
