About the Artist
I’ve been involved in art design my entire adult life. For many of those years I worked in Lithography creating album covers, magazine design and corporate graphic art. Glass has been a focus in my life for many years starting with the design and creation of leaded glass windows. More recently I have become passionate about Fused Glass. This combines my skills from leaded glass design to create many challenging and beautiful architectural commissions and custom glass sculptures.
Sandblasting glass vessels is the culmination of a lifetime of skills from drawing, cutting and carefully sandblasting glass. I love working with the rich colors of glass, revealed as I blast through several layers. Each piece is unique and presents a new challenge to combine my skills of drawing, now more demanding on a three dimensional surface. This requires incredible focus to execute the art of sandblasting and carving the edge of delicate glass vessels. I am honored to work with Laurie in her studio and look forward to the wonderful work we will create in the future.
