Fused glass artworks are designed, cut and assembled. They are then heated in a kiln, frequently requiring multiple firings and specific heating and cooling schedules, until the pieces and parts are fused and shaped by the heat.
I enjoy creating fused art that is sometimes utilitarian and sometimes not, and I particularly enjoy the challenge of using fusing techniques to create elements that will then be incorporated into my stained glass works.
Finding the Path
A number of pieces I have designed along the way, including this one, deal with searching....people are always searching for something. Peace, self-improvement, meaning of life, winning lotto ticket. For me, I find something closer to my true self when I am mentally and spiritually quiet. We circle around and around thinking we are looking for a thing, but for me it is the perfect circle of emptiness where all possibilities live that is the answer.
