I create vessels out of fusible sheet glass with applications of finely ground, colored glass powders. Each piece undergoes multiple operations in the kiln, where heat and gravity combine to fuse and shape the forms. I use grinding, polishing and sandblasting tools to refine the surfaces and edges. The finished works have a delicate, porcelain-like translucence and a smooth, slightly granular, matte surface.
