My interest in sculptural glass has expanded my exploration from painting onto glass with enamels, fusing and slumping glass, to pate de verre, casting glass paste into molds of my own creation that fire in the kiln.
This is a continuation of mold making for ceramics. These molds include subjects such as mermaids, Adam and Eve, trees, and abstract compositions. Other pieces are glass cut in different shapes, fused together, and slumped into molds or shaped with hangers fired in.
The study of glass has been an adventure that expands my ceramic skills into a new dimension. The translucence of glass, the passage of light through it, ties it into the ambient environment, and is a delight to the eye.
