salmon on lava

Salmon is approx. 7 inches on top of Icelandic lava as a base. I like the look, but I dont see myself doing too many more of these. The lava is a pain to work with. Thanks for lookin,

`Present Work`

My most recent work, blown from furnaces at the legendary Kosta Boda factory in Orrefors, Sweden. These pieces are the complete package in regards to what I truly cherish about glass. As I have matured as a designer with my process in tow, my passion for color has faded only to be occupied by an obsession over form and control. Thanks to my time practicing at Orrefors, I gathered the skills necessary to personally create glass designs I have been dreaming of and drawing for years. Although I have taken a hiatus from glass, this work will soon be re-awoken and expanded upon. Look forward to future greatness from a few of these series, specifically the Legit Mush and Haeckel sculptures.

Envisioning The Journey of 10,000 Steps

A journey of ten thousand steps begins with one. People usually fail when they are on the verge of success. So give as much care to the end as to the beginning; Then there will be no failure. Made of Effetre (tiny bit of Double Helix and dichro for accents) over my GTT Phantom. Measures about 5 x 4 x 3 inches, and holds marbles (removable) up to 1" diameter.

Violet Hour

- This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affections glow again and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen magically along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn - The hour, Bernard de Voto A wonderful and magical necklace made of my handmade lampwork BirdBeads - my signature beads - with a dichroic glowing core and funny details on both sides combined with sterling silver and fine silver.
