Guided by the interior and exterior cascade of shifting landscapes and experiences perceived by my corporeal mind, I seek out ways to express these both tangible and intangible ways of knowing through the medium of glass. As with almost any other material, glass can be expertly manipulated to a highly skilled degree, or it can also be used in such as manner as to allow a piece to melt and flow in the kiln so that it can also find its own equilibrium of expression. By intuitively sorting through my influences, external and internal, and expressing them through my choices of colored glass shapes, I am initially creating a carefully crafted non-representational composition, which is only fully completed through the unpredictable firing process. This “letting go” of control over the work allows it to be completed in the “unknown future”. The future is always the final stage of any artwork, although the end result of certain artforms and the materials they are fashioned from may be more unpredictable than others.
