I derive just as much pleasure from making dishes, plates, bowls and jewelry as I do from larger architectural pieces. I put the same amount of care and attention to detail in these smaller items as I do with my larger pieces. They all contain elements I create in separate firings. The dishes are sandblasted for a matte texture and have gone through multiple firings. I want my glass to be touched and held. Hand crafted functional art enriches our lives and adds beauty and substance to daily life. Functional work also allows people on a budget to incorporate art into their lives!
