It all starts when the involuntary vision of a piece invades ones thoughts. Almost like energy waiting to become materialized followed by an urge to begin.
Every project is a learning experience. From the drawing, selection of glass colors and textures to the building process with solder's graceful grip.
In stained glass, the solder is often taken for granted. I see it as the one that keeps it all together. It is fundamental, so I honor its role by using decorative and sculpting techniques. This also highlights character and strength.
Each piece is one of a kind, hand crafted with great intent, where every step in the process is considered a whole.
This is my
interpretation of nature's balance and beauty -ALWAYS INVITING THE LIGHT.
