I form tiles and other glass shapes from sheets of art glass, precisely layer them, then use high heat kilns to fuse them. Creating perfectly smooth, round edges from glass to form a whale’s eyes, teeth, fin and tail without any visible line, blip or blister is a technique mastered with time. They are all hand cut pieces. You have to build up the layer to get relief and the texture. Many of her pieces also contain little touches of recycled metal, faucet heads, tiny gears and other surprises.
