I’ll be hard at work for three days at the Museum of Glass this month.  Visitors can watch me make glass panels, works from my “Paloma” series and unique sculptures like this piece!

If you can’t visit Tacoma, tune in to the MOG Hotshop Livestream any day during museum hours! I’ve heard that watching glassblowing is sort of addictive. 🙂

“It is exciting to have a show in San Francisco, I haven’t been to the city in a number of years and it is great to visit and see what the art scene is like here. Montague has a gorgeous showroom with great visibility from the street. During the pandemic we really missed out on seeing art in person…I make sculpture and there is really nothing like seeing something physically, being able to walk around it and experience how light interacts with the work….”

Interview continues here.
