"As a sculptor, I am drawn to the beauty and versatility of glass and stone. These materials allow me to create a wide range of forms, textures, and colors, and to create pieces that exist in the space between durability and fragility, and between manufactured and found. Glass captures light and transforms it into movement through refraction, while stone provides a sense of solidity and permanence. Each stone has its own unique characteristics, and carving it requires improvisation and a sensitivity to its crystalline structures, fissures, and composition. By combining malleable glass with stone, Iâ€™m able to merge these materials in a way that honors the history of each, while still pushing the boundaries of what is possible technically and aesthetically."
