Glass demands your complete attention. Glassblowing is
a constant negotiation, a dance ŗ deux, between a seductive
flowing material with its own will and volition and an
artist with a vision and intent. If you fall out of step
with the dance, the Glass will follow the lure of gravity
and just as likely land on the studio floor! If you stay
in step, the Glass transforms from hot honey, gathered
around the end of your blowpipe, to a completed vessel:
a jewel for your home.
me, the art of glassblowing is a deeply peaceful dance
with the glass and the flame. I work both the shape of
the glass, to create the vessel, and the surface of the
glass, as if it is a molten canvas. The hot glass, the
2300 degree flame, and the metals I apply to the molten
glass surface all have their own chemistry … a
chemistry that results in unique and extraordinary beauty."
