I started off 2018 with a workshop at the Corning Museum of Glass, (CMOG), with James Mongrain, Goblets "Form and Function". This was the first workshop I have attended in over 20 years and it was long overdue. I went to CMOG with no expectations other than immersing m...

Back in Brooklyn at UrbanGlass to get our pumpkin on! I always look forward to fall and the holidays because I enjoy stocking the patch.

Well a lot has happened in the last year and when one door closes another one opens. It's been over 20 years since I've worked at UrbanGlass and I'm finally back in the studio. I've been working with my advanced crew getting our "glass" on and it feels great to be back...

The glass art community is a "big world, small world" phenomenon. The medium is like no other and the studio experience brings people together and creates a family. I have been working in this medium for 30 years and my "glass" family is vast, new and old. We had an am...

For the last two sessions we have been exploring making the vessel from just the pattern of murrini tiles and cane. I am happy with the results and plan on a couple of more changes in the weeks to come. I am experimenting with different techniques to keep the pattern f...

The design process has been quite rewarding with this series of vessels. I've been wanting to make one just from the tile alone. This piece is just that. Instead of using the incalmo technique, (the joining of multiple bubbles to create one.), we made this entirely out...

I have been leaving the pattern on the surface of the bubble which gives the vessel a texture. With this one I decided to gather, (putting a layer of clear glass over the surface), on top of the pattern and I am pleased with the result. There is no longer a texture but...
