My work in glass and clear plastic brings together two materials, deceptively similar in appearance, yet incompatible in in nature, each imbued with a specific set of social and cultural attributes.
I use centuries-old techniques to breathe imagery into the glass. Then, through orchestrated melting of both materials I stage their interaction in unique ways that capture their states at particular points in time as they liquify and morph into a new creation.
This process and transformation provide a metaphor through which to explore the dynamics of change and uncertainty on both a personal or human level and on an environmental scale. My pieces document moments in time in the course of this exploration.
