Fine Artist in Glass …

Define your space with modern relics …

Modern Relics

I design with glass. From my studio in Bozeman Montana, I experiment with the many properties of glass. I enjoy incorporating kiln glass, art glass, steel and found objects into my mosaic artwork to achieve a three-dimensional collage. I experiment with light and how it changes the appearance of glass and its texture. I fuse many layers of glass together under extreme temperatures and play with the reactive potential of lead, copper and sulfur that occur in the different colors. I learn the rules of working with glass, then, stretch those boundaries and create new possibilities.

Modern Relics is a series of complimentary artwork for both residential and commercial spaces. The designs include mosaic collages to hang on your wall, unique lighting to brighten your interior, and kiln glass as decorative sculpture or functional ware.



Mosaic Collage

The artwork explores the details of place and time. Each collage embraces the ever-changing environmental elements found in the Southwest and demonstrates an intrigue with expressing the dynamic textures and bold colors found in nature. The mosaics are comprised of hand-cut glass, kiln glass, re-claimed items, steel and found objects.

Ambient lighting, vessel sinks, and custom tile accents are designed to enhance your residential or commercial interior. All designs incorporate large pieces of glass selected by color, texture and depth. Currently, signature, hand-made, kiln glass is created for the lampshades.

Kiln Glass

Sculptural, decorative and functional artwork that evolved out of experiments with layering of glass and the chemical reaction between different colors. Fused pieces are created by learning the rules of working with glass and then stretching those boundaries to come up with unique designs. They often become lampshades, parts of a mosaic, or functional tableware.
