My works resemble cocoons, imbued with time, moments and thoughts, and thus bearing memories of the past, the present and also a sense of growing within themselves wings towards the future. I use techniques known as Swedish overlay and bubble overlay to apply color to the exterior surface of the glass, and then by polishing the laminated colored glass (white) I can create layers of color. I hope you enjoy these works, the expressions of which would be impossible to create through the technique of standard glassblowing alone.
