Glass IS magic 

Its beauty is mesmerizing, distracting - enticing. It draws you in to its depths with its dazzle and flash. It can be sensous soft and molten or cold hard and cutting. It takes you on a journey whether you are viewing it or creating with it. This magical medium, the only known solid liquid on earth, calls to the mad scientist in my heart that loves to experiment, to the tenacious visionary that just knows 'X' is possible, to the inner child who delights in the results.  

During the years I was finding my artistic way, making a living and a life, the special coefficient compatible glass used in fusing and casting was being invented in the north western united states ( late 70's) By the time we were introduced in 2000 my fate was sealed. I'd already tried my hand at a few stained glass pieces. Combining glass with my other love (ceramics) brought it all together.

  The shadow and light play I am able to create through fusing make the possibilities endless, exciting and new. Whatever I am creating  ‘balance is key’, the subliminal thread that weaves everything into cohesion. My work is often tactile with the intention of tempting one to touch the untouchable. To stir the ponderings of the mind to wonder “how’d she do that?” Come take a journey through the sublime magic of color kissed shadow and light with me. Come explore the art of fused glass.
