After spending the last 35 years working as a freelance photographer, it is time for new creativity in my personal world. Fascination with glass has been part of my life for some time. Only recently, however, have I stepped beyond my comfort zone and begun creating beauty in three-dimensions. Color, form and symmetry have always excited me, but I’ve limited my translation of these three elements to two-dimensional film and paper. I’m thrilled to sit at my torch and transform a cold rod of glass into a tantalizing new shape with vibrant hues and sparkling highlights.
On January 26, 2011, my first bead was born. I hope you’ll join in my journey into this new adventure of hot glass. I’m excited with my results to this point and eager to share the beauty of my lamp-worked (flame-worked) treasures with you.
