My recent work is informed by my research into the history of art and architecture.  Throughout history - form, shape, and scale were utilized in art and architecture as a tool to bolster power, submission, and awe - both in secular and religious realms.  After recreating classical forms and geometric structures with sheet glass, I use the heat of kiln to both unite and distort these histories.  Through the timeless ubiquity of glass paired with chance happenings within the kiln, I seek to understand our place in the larger trajectory of human civilization and propose the longstanding, interconnected visual cultures and rituals that unite us all through time and place.
