pieces were inspired by underwater creatures, sea anemones, which entrance
me. In movement and structure they are open, flowing, and succulent. The
forms emerge as a feminine reflection of these attributes. They are fragile
yet strong, vulnerable yet buoyant, showy yet austere, and delicate yet
grand. My intent is to convey, through sensuous gesture and overlapping,
translucent layers of glass, the textural complexity of a coral reef.
I am intrigued by shapes that present the question: how precarious is
this? The suggestion that the pieces may change or transform comes out
of the manner in which they are constructed. In the dark heat of the kiln,
shapes open and close, twist about, or become tense and then relax. The
final sculpture freezes a moment that it is both stable and dynamic.
