Glass Philosophy

Discovering that heat, fire, and breath can combine to produce the object in mind has fueled my glass career.

The main focus of my work is to explore the contrasts in color and surface – light/dark, opaque/transparent, glossy/matte – these are all common themes in my work, production and original.  Patterns are a specific interest of mine as well.  The most recent is the diverse, striking patterns that are represented in the “Modelli” and “Barca” pieces.  The “Modelli” are tall, sleek and slightly oval shapes with a distinct, rich opaque pattern intersected with a bright transparent line, that allows light to shine through, something that always reminded me of a symbol on a church, or on a knights garment from the crusades.  The “Barca” are reminiscent of when I was a kid – I loved to build models, the plastic kit kind – cars, boats, airplanes.  I particularly admire the way the boats and airplanes are displayed on a stand, they are the main inspiration for how the “Barca” are displayed.

  1. Hello,
    I was recommended to you by David at Blowwingsands. We need a glass lampshade fabricated to match one that broke. Can you help with that? Thanks,
