I have always been interested in patterns. The more geometric and complex, the better. I was initially seduced by the fluid nature of glassblowing, but found kiln-forming to be a better way to explore my ideas. Whenever possible, I use both techniques. Kiln working helps to create strong lines and precise shapes while glassblowing adds an element of fluidity and unpredictability. I think that it’s important to have a connection with the objects in our lives, there is so much mass production and impersonalization in the world. I want to make beautiful objects that have a place in everyday life.
