As I design a piece, I try to imagine it finished: How will my art piece interact in its environment and how will it elicit a response from the person viewing it?  I use frit—a variety of ground glass—to create layers in my pieces. I also use a torch to create intricate glass components, which I fuse to the glass surface to give my work even more textures that are not usually associated with fused glasswork. The result is a complex degree of depth that plays with viewers’ eyes to draw them into looking more deeply into my work.
