Making beautiful art from broken pieces of glass is very compelling for me. The transformation from broken to beautiful inspires and moves me. Although I have done flat mosaics, making dimensional mosaic sculptures, primarily of imagined creatures, has formed my current work. The creatures are made from my welded skeletons, covered with concrete, then finished with pieces of glass. Many are designed for garden use.
Many of the materials I use are scrap, broken, or leftover pieces. Some of my most beautiful glass is discarded, unique, handblown. My most recent work utilizes handblown glass by Holly Wallace, owner of Ruby Glass.
Mirrors, with their reflected light, thrill me. much of my work involves using clear glass over mirror, so the sculpture changes as the viewer moves, and as the ambient light changes.
