Artist Statement


 

My kiln casting practice is greatly inspired by nature and the patterns of connections between the natural and human worlds. I work with metaphor, natural elements, and surreal imagery that I then translate into cast organic forms. I am intuitively drawn to certain symbols and creatures, and these leads me to the development of my three-dimensional forms. Glass lends itself nicely to the representation of themes of duality and transformation, and in my work, I express these in a purposefully fluid way.
