Fusing, blowing, electroplating and casting glass

I started fusing glass in 1997 after a workshop with Dan Fenton in Las Vegas Nevada.  The platter and bowl below are made in 1997 with spectrum waterglass, after I tested the glass for compatibility. In 2006 I entered the glass program at The Ohio State University and learned to blow glass as part of their curriculum. I experimented with flowers and stick figures that I would make in my torch at home and included them in my paperweights and vessels. The Last two pieces on this page are cast glass. The face is a sand cast of my own face and the "green" sculpture is made from recycled beer bottles.
