I take inspiration from everyday occurrences going on around me, whereupon I make sketches of images, and then I transfer fragments of humanity’s lived signs and memories onto the glass. The work I make is less concerned with beauty of material or finesse of technique, but rather seeks to bring to attention both problems inherent within and messages directed toward contemporary society. The glass is melted in a kiln heated to 850 degrees Celsius, and then it is poured into its mold, in which various colors collide and intermix with one another, and new colors are born. When the cooled glass is removed from its mold, there are many unknown discoveries to be made.
