I began melting glass in 2003, and it sent me down a new creative path.  I started torching so I could make the size and color beads I envisioned for a particular vintage piece, and it has turned into an obsession.  It is mesmerizing and soothing to watch the glass move as it is heated by the flame of a torch, and it is empowering to turn this molten glob of glass into a work of art. 

Each bead is individually created and balanced in the flame, then fully annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure its strength.  Before I work on the torch, I find inspiration in vintage items in my ever growing collection.  The colors, shapes, textures and designs influence my work with glass.
