About Us

Using a torch and a wide palette of colours, I melt the glass until fluid, mix colours, sometimes add metals and create various textures, shape it and then anneal [cool it slowly so not only does the glass not crack but because incredibly hard and durable] before creating the final piece.

Working with glass combines my intense desire to work with colours and textures in a medium not afforded me

through other artistic means. Glass has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.

But it was my son, an artist and evolving glass blower, who suggested this was THE medium for which I’d been looking to express my love affair with colour, shape, design and texture. I can be ever so formal in my shape and colour choice; whimsical or downright childlike. And it all works.

Using a torch and a wide palette of colours, I melt the glass until fluid, mix colours, sometimes add metals and create various textures, shape it and then anneal [cool it slowly so not only does the glass not crack but because incredibly hard and durable] before creating the final piece.
I offer that which excites and satisfies me, believing that if I do that which I am passionate about, others may find it compelling. Whatever techniques I use [or don’t use] are secondary to the overall feel of what I’ve put together in a piece.

Though photos never truly reflect the depth of what glass has to offer, these will, nevertheless, give you some idea of my work.
While the term “wearable art” may be a bit overused, it fits with this particular medium. Each of my pieces is unique and one-of-a-kind.

I also joyfully do custom work.

Prices range from $25 for a single bead necklace to $175. Please call or email for specific prices.
