I’ve tried other career paths. I studied painting, taught art in a juvenile jail, worked on a fishing boat, got a j.d., but I kept returning to glass. I love turning solid glass into a liquid and back again and experimenting with new ways of adding color, shaping glass, and pushing the boundaries of size for lampworking.
As a maker, I aim to make colorful, playful work that you will want hang in your windows, decorate your house with, drink your whiskey from, and give to your mom.
As a teacher, I try to share this passion with my students and visitors! Rather than doing the work for you, I guide you through the creation process. You will feel safe and empowered on the torch and have a great experience!
