Since my glass journey began in 2013 the natural world has been my biggest inspiration. The delicate petals of a flower undisturbed by the elements it absorbs, the fierceness of a spring river and how all the insignificant moments are miraculously interconnected. Bringing this inspiration together into glass sculptures is no easy feat. Lighting up a propane and oxygen rich torch, spinning molten borosilicate glass rods and tubes at precise temperatures to bend, taper and twist; at the same time keeping the glass at its satisfied temperature to prevent cracking. I create sculpted glass floral and fauna to design a delicate world. I hope to portray how fragile the natural world is and inspire a need for its protection.
