Glass is magical

It's mesmerizing, distracting - enticing. It draws you in to its depths then refracts you out with its glare. It's sensous soft and molten. It's hard, cold 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.

While finding my artistic way to this deliscious medium, it was being created. All the special coefficient compatible glass used in fusing and casting was invented in the north western united states ( late 70's). When we were introduced in 2000 my fate was sealed. I'd already tried my hand at a few stained glass pieces and played with ceramics, weaving, and home decorating. Fusing brought all my loves together.

  The shadow and light play I am able to achieve with glass make the possibilities endless, exciting and new. Whatever I'm up to ‘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.
