What fascinates me the most about glass fusion is to see a material like glass, that is usually very rigid, go through a transformation where it changes shape, its level of translucency, and to some degree color as well. It’s always a surprise when one opens the kiln for the first time after a piece of art has been fused or slumped. I try to incorporate those little inconsistencies into my art, since they are an integral part of the glass itself.
Guided by friends, I am mostly self-taught. I grew up in Switzerland and lived in New York City and San Francisco before making the Portland area my new home. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I’d like to hear from you.
