Artist Statement

My glass and found object series is driven purely by form and the relationship of the materials that I use. I’m intrigued by the contrast that the rusty tools have with the altered glass that surrounds them. Once I’m satisfied with the outcome of this arrangement, I then construct an environment for which the object rests.
