Teaching a workshop in Pilchuck, summersession 2003
The last years, I have been busy primarly with making sculptures from glass, often in combination with other materials such as coins, flatware, Spanish pepers, hair etc. The idea of making a dress from glass was born of the fact that I often swim and then I see how the water forms a sort of second skin around a body form, a moment in time of this, a sort of frozen image which I wanted to creat in reality.
I work mostly by association and intuitavely, as an example the idea to oxydise coins and combine them with glass is an association of a sunken treasure chest underwater which in combination with the human form seems to be rising from the deep. I always try to make thinks having a certain tension by suggesting movement.
