Glass, found object. Approx. 3 x 3 in. each

Open Edition Series.


All my artwork began with a love of botanical life, with a studio filled with jars of dried plant parts – twigs, buds, seed pods, leaves, lichen, etc., and a collection of bird nests. I love these objects. They are simple and complex, and always beautiful. 

In 1998, I began a series of nests – of all sorts – flameworked glass, pate de verre, reed, metal, etc. As the work in the series develops, these objects, inspired by nature, bring joy and delight.
