  • I am heavily informed by my background in glass. The intense process of glass making is has led me to a personal studio practice that is invested in the embedded histories of materials and performance as the origin of meaning in objects. Craft, digital technology and performance intersect in my work to re-frame the meaning of ordinary and ephemeral materials.
