Artist's Statement:
I have always been attracted to small precious objects. To me, it is perfectly natural and logical to work with the paperweight form. The slick, glassy surface and reassuring weight of the piece are very satisfying. The circular shape is one of the most basic and primal in existence. The idea of sealing an aesthetically created image under a dome of glass has a magical quality to it. How can it be floating, suspended in the middle of the sphere? The curved surface adds to the mystery, because one can never tell exactly how big or how small the encased image is due to magnification. One has visual access to the work, but it can never be touched; it is sealed forever!

I enjoy and prefer producing commonplace everyday imagery. It is important to me to connect with collectors with familiar subject matter. I am not interested in presenting random bubbles, patterns, or swirls as design elements, but rather attaining a distinct, sharp rendering in glass. Meeting this challenge successfully is definitely a measure of skill. I make primarily floral designs because they are appreciated the world over - they are universal. My work is also a point of reference for the collector - to see how I make a sunflower or a rose and compare it to his or her own idea of that subject. The more an artist can reveal, the better he will be able to communicate, and this determines his ultimate success.


Glass is a material unlike any other, and working with it is a learned skill. Along with an aptitude and reasonable amount of dexterity, there is no substitute for experience. One also has to have a tremendous capacity to withstand frustration. There have been countless hours of intense labor that seem to have been entirely fruitless. Seemingly endless examples with cracked flowers or terrible bubbles will truly test the artist's determination. However, when a piece turns out as planned, it is very gratifying. In it, I have created a personal vision of color, balance, and clarity - an object of beauty that with reasonable care will last for generations.
