Arts & Crafts
Glass provides the colors both vibrant and muted, the textures from silky to embedded swirls, the reactive power of the metals within. Then add the intense heat of the kiln and the spirit of the glass changes. I use this change to create both functional pieces such as Sushi Sets and square bowls to abstract hanging art that includes beads, metals and paints. It is the anticipation every time I open the kiln to see what magic awaits that fuels my creativity in glass.
