In 1995 I began working in Stained Glass and in 2000 was captivated by the possibilities in kiln-formed glass. Since then I have educated myself by taking glass classes from many prominent artists in the field and through my own studio work. My work consists mostly of wall pieces and sculptures incorporating glass, steel, stone and wood. My husband, Joe, and I work together on these pieces. Functional work is also part of my practice. In 2004 I began silversmithing and combine cast glass and enamel in my jewelry work. Each year I teach several warm glass and/or jewelry classes at Astral Glass Studio.
