These pieces represent my transition from paint to glass. As a colourblock painter, I became frustrated with the opacity of the medium, and I turned to translucent glass in hopes of achieving not just the appearance - but the reality - of depth in my work. Once I began developing my own process with layers of crushed glass (called frit), the sky was the limit.
