Cast Glass Sculpture.
5" W x 2.5" H x 1.5" D.
Pragmatically, my process, lost wax frit and traditional pate de verre (glass pate) casting, tests my humility. It requires a patience and focus that is a perpetual challenge for me. As a former professional pastry chef, I sometimes view the forms I create in glass as a type of permanent baking. Kiln-cast glass yields results that are translucent and often candy-like. Consequently, the fused material allows light to define form, and to glow from within. The material becomes the perfect metaphorical vehicle for projecting both my one-of-kind and limited-edition investigations.
