About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

Blown, lamp worked and cold worked borosilicate glass with mixed media and precious metals. I reference fine art, fashion, interior design and nature. I hand blow each bubble. While the work appears heavy and fragile it is extremely lightweight and durable. My goal is to push the boundaries of what glass can and can't do and to create never before seen pieces whose only reference is imagination. Within my compositions I strive to balance color, texture, reality and illusion. They are the perfect balance of strength and beauty.
