My unique lamps are made with combinations of recycled glass from bottles, fusible glass that I created myself, and interesting stained glass. Some of these I will tumble for a beach glass effect and others I put in my kiln. Sometimes I use both techniques for really unique elements. Next I came up with an original method of wire wrapping the glass to the shade like it was a material. This free form method allows me to create very individual looking lamps. Finally, I often create my own luminary frames to achieve my vision.
When I feel someone’s excitement in choosing one of my pieces, I am energized to create more. I have always enjoyed the light that comes through a sun catcher. I wanted to bring this same effect into the rest of the home. Glass is an excellent medium for complementing light.
I make my work to be touched and enjoyed. It is meant to add color and light to a space. It is important that my work be functional as well as pretty. When my lamps are turned on and I see someone’s smile I know it worked.
I put together a few videos on how to I do shows and what it take to get in and set up and all the information and how i came to "light" Check out the link ......
