"I love glass: the textures, translucence, colors, and nature of glass- it's melted, honeyed consistency; rigid fragility; and delicate sharpness. Just as light is important to the painter, so it is essential to glass. Light and the resulting reflections, glowing highlights, shadows and complex patterns become a part of the work which defines its innate beauty. It is something which transcends what the artist can do with mere physical materials. Thank you for visiting my Delphi gallery, and I hope you find either joy or inspiration in my work, as I do in yours."
