My figures are sculpted free-hand while the glass is hot on the blowpipe. Aesthetically and conceptually the source of my inspiration is all around me. The human figure in its many forms is a window on and connection to our humanity (and our divinity). There is always ambiguity. Power, for example, can be expressed as ugly, demeaning and objectifying, or it can be beautiful, strong and joyful. In the end, my work is always about people, our intentions toward each other and our relationship to nature and society.
