My designs are inspired and
drawn from nature, Art Deco and Art Nouveau, Native American art, among others.
The dichroic glass masks have multiple layers of different colored glass, which
are then etched to create the designs. Some have as many as four layers of
glass. The "frit" masks are fired multiple times to create landscapes
using a painterly effect. Many of these landscapes also have glass elements
(such as tree branches) that are created with glass rods and a torch. After
multiple firings, the masks are "slumped" or fired over molds to
create their shapes. I use a variety of glass for my masks, including dichroic glass and powdered glass called "frit". Each mask is individually created, so please allow for
