Hot Glass and Lava: from Jewelry to Sculpture

Over the past few years, my secret love of geology has come to light. My interests in science stem from to my outdoor lifestyle as a child and my passion to care for the environment. I chose lava after several years of failed attempts with other stones that were incompatible with the borosilicate glass. Lava is silica based, light weight, porous and can withstand the high temperature of this process. 

Initially, I made a series of jewelry to sketch out forms and experiment with the process. Most recently, I have begun a series of  larger pieces that are wrapped in several layers of glass. For me lava is a symbol of the earth and creation. The glass represents a field of energy, a fragile layer of protection for nature. In a moment of presence, I hope to convey a oneness between the earth and the viewer. Ultimately, these pieces are about connection–physically and conceptually.
