Artist's Statement The primary medium that I pursue in my artistic practice is glass. The process of glassblowing is captivating, the material is always forgiving, and unforgiving. Glass, like nature, abhors straight lines. Perhaps for this reason, I have been creating a series of square forms that attempt to defy the very character of the medium. The process is mold based and quite repetitive. Recently, I have been tearing open these carefully constructed pieces to reveal what is inside. I juxtapose traditional techniques with pure experimentation indicative of the studio glass movement.
