The aims of my activities at Pilchuck Glass School are to continue my exploration of the sonic properties of materials and to extend this to the specific qualities of glass. Of particular interest is the capacity for change. Glass objects whether utilitarian or decorative (windows. glassware, bowls, lenses, vases, etc) are commonly associated with delicacy, transience, refinement, and polish. The objects themselves however are teeming with an energy that comes from their violent birth; a transformation of matter akin to alchemy and a pliability of form that borders on the fantastical.
