Glass Artist

Hot glass artist. Salem, OR. Inspired by my art history background.

I work mainly in hot glass, both lampwork / torchwork glass and kiln formed glass. Most of this ultimately takes the form of jewelry. While my degree in studio art came decades later, my original academic background in art history and archaeology provides endless inspiration for my work. I pull ideas from images as diverse as the earliest glass from the Bronze Age, through the paintings of Mark Rothko. And I draw great satisfaction from being able to translate these sources into light-filled functional jewelry and small-scale sculptural objects that my customers can wear and enjoy.
