Details about work or recent projects

In my creative work process, I have tried to ally different material with glass. This has permitted me to enrich my works’ potential of reaching the summit of expressiveness, while elevating my artistic process beyond what I deem as possible when solely working with glass. Likewise, I have worked with paper, fibers and other organic materials conjointly with flame worked and blown glass. Currently, I am exploring a new avenue of using fabric as a complimentary material which is inspiring the creation of a new series of work.
