YES, the glass is truly woven!

My woven glass sculptures consist of hundreds of glass ribbons that I create by hand-cutting large sheets of glass and adding details like stringers of colors and dichroic glass.  

The Prism of Life series

This set of nine sculptures began as a study of color and the emotions that color can evoke. The colors flow through the whole color spectrum with a multitude of hues and tones. Each sculpture is named according to the emotion and memories I feel when I look at them.

Vertically from left to right.

“oh baby YES!!” – the deep and hot reds of this sculpture reminds me of my most passionate moments… like when my darling husband asked me to marry him. Wink. Wink.

“Tenderness” – the soft pinks and gentle lavenders of this sculpture brings back the tender and fleeting moments of when my children were so very young, learning and changing daily.

“Reflection” – the deep purples of this sculpture reminds me that I will find solace in time. 

“Peace” – the deep clean blues of this sculpture feels absolutely still with no energy or movement.

“Tranquility” – turquoise blues, light aquamarines, and teals have a calm and soothing rhythm.

“Growth” – I feel a sense of rejuvenation and development as the color transitions from cold green thru warm yellow greens culminating in a bright lemon-lime. There is a strong parallel to the natural world around us.

“Joy” – pure and unadulterated canary and sunflower yellows sings out.

“Play” – marigold yellows are introduced in this sculpture and an energy and movement is felt. There is a fun transparent turquoise ribbon in this sculpture that just makes me smile!

“Laughter” – raucous mid-tones of oranges burst from this sculpture.

Blue Bird Flies series

These woven glass sculptures are inspired by Dorothy’s song about longing to go home.
