Artist Statement
My work draws heavy influence from nature; both visually and its environmental inter-connectivity. Before creating my glass terrariums I think about how each species of plants’ growth habits differ. I make my work with a technique called lamp-working. In the flame of a torch I heat borosilicate glass rods, tubing and powders until they are soft and pliable allowing me to sculpt the glass material with simple graphite tools. I make work because glass has limitless possibilities, and is able to invoke any emotional response; just as a living plant can.
