Artists Statement: 
My practice is primarily in glass, although I often reference my previous experience with textiles. I work with a variety of glass processes including hot glass, kiln forming, casting and engraving. I discovered a love of engraving and graal work that I intend to pursue further this year. My work ranges in scale from intimate hand held objects to larger pieces cast directly from the body or blown forms made in the in hot shop. I have a broad interest in the concept of self identity, especially how we fashion ourselves versus how we are perceived by others.
