For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with foreign lands and their cultures. As a child, growing up in Montana, my journeys were played out between the covers of an unending stream of books. Stamp collecting further fueled my imagination for exotic destinations. Eventually, my curiosity got the better of me and I packed two suitcases and moved to Europe. It has been a rich and fantastic journey, thus far, and the end has yet to be written.
My explorations in glass attempt to convey a sense of transition and discovery, while focusing on cultural identities. The viewer is challenged to examine fixed perceptions that relate to the dynamics of identity and culture.
Classes at my Studio
I offer classes in my studio in Baldham located just 12 km. east of Munich, Germany. Classes are offered in German or English. A Basic Introduction Class in Fused and Slumped Glass techniques (Kilnformed Glass) runs 4-5 hours. Classes are offered days, evenings or weekends. Up to 4 participants can be accomodated in my studio, with a minimum of 2 participants required for a class to be scheduled. Customized classes covering specialised techniques can be booked upon completion of an introductory class.
