I began handling molten glass for aesthetic purposes in 1974 at Kent State University and achieved an MFA from Ohio University. The sphere, with its minimal physicality, has become the one factor unifying my investigations of color systems and radically diverse explorations in historical glass techniques. Mining 5,000 years of glass history as a rich source of inspiration, I create everything from traditional marbles to realistic interpretations of animal pelts. My work is held in museums such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the National Museum of American Art.
