The lines left in the sand at low tide, the motion of the eddies and current, the pattern that bugs leave on a branch when you remove the bark, these natural patterns have found a way into and have inspired my work. I sometimes incorporate as the base a natural element, like stone or wood giving the pieces a direct connection to my inspirations.
My colors are based on controlling the effects that one can achieve with glass. They are created from heat and air, producing loose and interesting layered patterns. I am regally experimenting with color and light, building layers to capture movement to keep these pieces alive. I am producing a feeling within a contained form allowing the patterns to start to take shape in ones own thoughts. The closer that one looks the more imagery will start to come out.
When people view my work, I like to leave them, with a smile on their face. Wondering how did he do that.
