Glass took me under its spell early when at the age of nine I sat glued in place watching the traveling lampworkers spin ships and unicorns. Through the years my relationship with glass has come to define a good bit of who I am. I pursued my interest through an apprenticeship in scientific glassblowing and then on into the art glass world teaching and showing my work. Some forty-four years later my fascination with this most universal of materials is ongoing. From art to manufacturing color and teaching, glass has been a near life-long companion.
