I love glass. It is not like the other materials we live with day in and day out. Soft, fluid and malleable when molten and hard, sharp, rigid when cold. It is a connection to the ancients, a dialog.
Glass is a mere lens to manipulate light yet it can be a portal into your soul. As a vitreous substance – it has no orderly crystalline structure, no melting or freezing point, it is unique, an anomaly.
The Egyptians showed me how to speak in glass. I talk to glass and it talks back. We have had this dialog for almost 40 years. It is just now starting to make sense. My love affair is as much with the process and the interaction as it is with the results for it is that act of creation that serves as the conduit to the special place.
