About

VISION:
These lamps are instruments of light that play glass’ spectrum of fragility– from delicate to nerve wracking. They use a range of techniques, from old stained glass work to current bong making. They are in large part born of a devotion to amplifying glass’ presence in our lives in the form of color, luminosity and intensity.

LAMPS:
There are six models, with variations in each:
Sconce, really a way to outfit a simple light bulb in a colored glass composition. These are made as singular pieces, pairs, or as a series. Hanging Lamp, are composed of glass pipe tubes in angular patterns; their basic module is a triangle but they multiply in size and shape. Glass Box Sconce, acts more like a painting that is lit from within; the images these sconces hold and the shapes they take are riffs on specific architectural sites. These are made in singular and series form.
Praying Mantis Corner Pieces, comes with a modular system which can crawl as far up or down a corner as desired.
Glass Flashlight (and holder), the most useless “preparedness” item you’ll ever need.
Nightlight, part light part paintings, these are individual pieces which hang in a variety of ways.
