ELEMENTS OF NATURE


My sculptural glass forms incorporate subtle monochromatic transparent color. This singular use of color allows the delicately engraved surface to refract and transmit light. Gathering inspiration mainly from the natural world, I utilizes the glass to create strong elegant forms with a minimalist approach. Multiple forms are often placed together allowing for interaction and use of negative space. 

 


  PROCESS


Each form goes through numerous stages to accomplish it's final design. Initially each piece is sculpted into shape. Once it cools from the glassblowing process the labor intensive procedure of carving begins. Textures and intricate details are cut into the surface using diamond embedded tools. Subsequently, the entire piece is sandblasted unify the surface.


The final and most delicate step of the process requires the entire carved form to be reheated. This will heat only the exterior and will give the piece its final surface.
