I

Us­ing flame to shape glass, or con­nect metal, I com­bine torch-formed com­po­nents in soda lime glass: some shiny, some frosted, iri­des­cent, or phos­pho­res­cent, and de­sign them into jew­ellery. My work trans­lates a life­long fas­ci­na­tion with nat­u­ral his­tory, and the in­ter­face be­tween cul­ture, adorn­ment and en­vi­ron­ment. Co-found­ing a wildlife pre­serve & glass stu­dio in Cen­tral Amer­ica has deeply in­flu­enced and fu­elled my artis­tic in­spi­ra­tion. My in­ter­est is to con­vey an au­then­tic sense of won­der to­wards our frag­ile ecosys­tems us­ing the sculp­tural medium of glass. (Crea­ture neck­piece by Kate Rothra-Felm­ing)
