Work is inspired by friends and places I've loved. I have a reverence for beautiful materials and traditional techniques.
I draw with glass lines made while I manipulate molten glass as it streams from the bottom of a small kiln I've suspended in the air. I form the glass panels by melting glass sheets together in a large kiln. Some of my drawings are created by layering glass powders and small pieces of ground glass called frit. I sculpt small objects from glass and melt them to the glass panels to create 3-dimensional surfaces.
Fiber work has a whole other set of creative challenges. I hand dye all of my fibers and usually weave with silk thread on traditional Swedish looms.
I hand weave baskets then cover them with layers of silk and wool. Basket surfaces are embellished with hand-woven tapestry and a fusion of embroidery traditions from many cultures.
I'm honored that my work has been selected for both national and international museum and group exhibitions. I've been a juried member of the American Embroiderer's Guild and I've served as a juror for the American Tapestry Alliance. I share my knowledge by teaching glass and fiber workshops throughout the country.
The national organization, Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, has awarded me the lifetime achievement of Master Craftsman.
