art is about the joy of discovery and transformation through vitreous
enamel. Powdered glass is transformed into jewel-like copper tiles
by heat, with often unpredictable results. The tiles have a depth
of color and texture that goes beyond the surface. Each tile responds
to light and seems to glow from within as the light is reflected
back to the viewer. This reflection changes almost magically throughout
the day as the light changes. When you move around the work, its
appearance transforms as the light bounces back at different angles.
Images from nature anchor the variety of color and texture while
adding balance. It makes me happy just moving from one side of a
work to the other watching the ever-changing play of light and color.
I make objects that are simply beautiful, encouraging the viewer
to bask in the beauty of the entire work, as well as its parts and
experiences the piece through light and time. Enjoy.
