Skills:I am glass maker and have practiced glass work such as engraving, flameworking, furnace work since 2012. I love mixed media sculptures and work with many mediums!
The creativity of young minds is a driving inspiration for my work. I enjoy re-contextualizing children's artwork through in-depth collaboration with my craft work. Mixed media elements allow me to fully describe the emotion of a piece and reiterate unconventional characteristics of children's designs.
Recent project reports
Here are some shots of Eric and I discussing the project. He created the shark predictor design in record speed!
Next I use a Peobo low fire marker to draw on robotic and facial expressions!
I have been out of studio for a little while...
Eric and I zoomed and he designed a fierce predator for the Octapus Slapper to face!
I have made the models with furnace glass at the glass blowing bench with hot bits rather than on the torch. There are many methods to choose from when forming glass, sometimes it takes a few tries to find the best one for the job.
