The most compelling aspect of working with glass is the way the material loves light, sparkling and shimmering to engage a viewer. I think a lot about what draws our attention and why—especially in this world where there are so many things competing for our attention. Alongside the hard lines and repetitive forms of our cityscape, I notice the fluidity and constant transformations in our natural world. Those moments fascinate me and I try to re-create them in my work to offer a sustaining viewing experience. Making work with glass means that the experience is infinitely variable: changing with lighting, movement, even the viewer’s mood.
