Scientific Glassblower

I am interested in exploring the tension between reality and representation by constructing transitional, three-dimensional map-like objects. The act of mapping is a powerful tool for constructing new realities out of old facts, to visualize alternative worlds and to enable interrelationships between previously unrelated layers of information. Maps are evolving structures, rhizomatic in nature, able to unfold identities, to give room to exploration and procedures of relating.

I specialize in a technique often called flameworking, lampworking or scientific glassblowing and within my current body of work I have started to investigate a little explored combination of scientific glassblowing and Neon sign industry skills.The resulting work is a unique combination of illuminated sign and scientific glassblowing skill.
