The Glass Roots Series was inspired by my everyday surroundings and my travel experiences in both Europe and the U.S. Many of the images are scenes that I see through my studio window or while walking in the woods behind my house. The many layers found in these pieces are made up of sheet glass, liquid and powdered enamels, mica powder and bits of colored glass called frit, which are cut, stacked, painted then fired (or fused) in a large kiln to 1500 F, often two or three times each. Glass is a natural material, both complex and versatile, requiring intense heat and gentle handling. Like in nature, the color and "mood" of the glass will change depending on the ambient light.
