"Native American art has always been a vessel for storytelling, utilitarian, and ceremony purposes. I started my studies of glass by recreating some of these vessels. My hope is that, as people view these familiar pieces they look deeper into the vessel to feel and hear the stories that were told but in an older language interpreted from the living light of glass."
"The unique DNA of my art is described as two art forms using the Four Elements but opposite processes combined in an attempt to create a new art form. Glass is pottery that has an inner glow. Clay and glass start as sand. Glass and clay are molded when malleable, the difference is one uses fire and the other water. Clay you can touch, glass is created with a breath of air."
"When people first discover my art the first thing they ask “is that glass?”. How is it done?"
"The first three years blowing glass I explored some Italian forms and techniques. It was a great experience blowing glass as thin as possible and still have it come out in one piece, unbroken."
"I am currently working on Pueblo Pottery forms of the South West."
