I am fascinated by exploring areas between certainty and doubt, conveying a sense of the volume of space, and impeding the flow of light. Images are built through multiple firings on many layers of glass, which permits the object to 'move' as the layers shift in relation to each other with the movement of the viewer.

Details about work or recent projects

Jeff moved to Edinburgh from Washington, DC. He has a Masters' in glass & architectural glass from Edinburgh College of Art, where he teaches glass in the Office of Lifelong Learning program.

Recent work has focussed on two themes: the disconnect between action and consequence, and the whitewashing of pasts.
