I am a production glass blower that creates one-of-a-kind pieces that take on a modern aesthetic using traditional techniques. My goal is to produce a well-crafted object that allows the user to feel connected to the material and experience it with a new appreciation and fascination. My artwork allows me to express the sculptural elements of the material while my production glass grants me the ability to design drinkware, lighting, and home decor items.
