What draws you to work with glass?
Glass is an incredibly attractive material that requires endless creativity in the ways of forming and working with it as a medium. Although it is beautiful in every form, it’s often equally temperamental and challenging. This challenge is what draws me to glass.
What themes do you pursue in your work?
I have a deep interest in the historical and modern relationships between human and horse. As we all can imagine the horse was instrumental in the advancement of humankind but horses also share a historical connection with glass, as once glass was so valuable that it was traded for horses. Within my work, I take fragments of equine anatomy, sculptural horses, and equine-based tools formed in glass, to recreate moments of equine and human interactions.
What's something about you that most people don't know?
Something interesting about me that many don’t know is I am a certified riding coach and train horses. Being a coach and training horses is very similar to working with glass; one has to embrace the process, and be patient. The best results always come when you are open to the experience and willing to roll with the punches.
Why am I a member of GAS?
Being a part of The Glass Art Society is like joining the international glass family. Through conferences that I attended in Corning 2016 and Murano 2018, I feel like I have become so much more connected with both my fellow glass artists and the passion and love we all feel for glass. GAS brings the glass world together through education, connections, and so much more.
