Glass has intrigued me from a very early age growing up in New England around beautiful church glass and the oldest glass studio in the country. In college my focus was on biomedical illustrations. As fate would have it technology advanced just as I graduated and another career choice was in order. I still maintained the curiosity for technical processes and glass work has those in spades. For several years I worked as a leaded glass designer under Susan Stinsmuehlen, who is well known in the industry. In 1988 I started my own studio. My focus was on large scale architectural glass, lighting and limited production table top for the first 25 years or so. I have been creating more autonomous artwork in the past 7 or 8 years.
From a very early age I have loved glass. To me there is not another medium that engages the viewer more. Glass changes with the quality of light over the course of the day. The color moderates with the seasons. There is a kinetic quality to glass as a viewer passes by or, for that matter, when they are still and see the texture of the glass change as light moves over it. Glass enhances the environment around it. It is my goal to set an atmosphere by manipulating light through glass. Glass is colored light in a form that can be molded. In my career I've been fortunate enough to create many large architectural commissions, lighting, limited production accessories and one of a kind artwork using just about every technique in glass!
