This process uses a torch to hand sculpt glass and has been used for centuries dating back to Mesopotamian and Roman histories to create detailed objects that are both decorative and functional. Hand sculpting glass is in part an improvisational technique. The objects I create are infused not only my hands but my impulse during the creative process.
As a ritual process of creation, glassblowing is in tune with the alchemical transformation of liquid to solid. Glassblowing is an ancient tradition, inherited from the old world. Each handmade piece is created with this alchemical process in mind. These products serve as talismans grounded in feminine energy functioning as a tool to balance the feminine and masculine energies within and around us.
