Glass Quarterly's Blog mentioned the Tracing Lines exhibition. Here is the link!
The Bridge Series was my first kilnformed series. It led me into the kilnforming work that I am doing now. It was also the first body of my work that I thought I could stand behind and approach a gallery with.
The bridges are about connecting a situation with an outcome. Each one deals with a certain personal situation that is abstracted into a contained form. Some situations are built and connect well and some can not span the distance. The lines inside the pieces are firm and distinct. Their surfaces are gently burnished to give a sense of time and memory.
I started the series in 2001. This also was the same year that I left Bullseye. This series helped me define my focus with glass and also provided my start showing with the Traver Gallery and others.
