Tide

Blown glass with multi-fired enamel

The cycles, seasons, routines, and repetitive daily events of life that occur around us affect our experiences, structure our identities and create the complexities of our personal stories. I use repetitive, linear mark making and the transparent glass vessel as a canvas to create complex layered patterns. This creates a moiré effect, causing the viewer to see shape, movement and energy, in addition to the line and form of the vessel itself. I explore dualities of collective and personal, individual and universal, interior and exterior. Using repeated simplicity to create complexity, I aim to make work that invites contemplation.
