My focus is on architecture and memory, while dealing with the concepts of home and human habitat, as well as our relationship with our surroundings.
Due to my family’s involvement in the real estate industry, architecture and the overall concept of “home” have been a consistent influence for me and a huge part of my life. Within my work, I aim to deal with these subjects through the themes of memory and architecture. For me, glass is the perfect medium to create my sculpture because of its ability to capture a specific memory or moment in time. Much of my work’s focus stems from past experience, architecture, memory, blueprints, ancient civilization, travel, tradition, building, and edged weaponry and cutlery.
Featuring architectural scenes and cityscapes cast in glass, my work aims to mimic and examine the historic “bare bones” upon which our cities are built. Stylistically interpreted Greco-Roman and Asiatic elements merge, creating playful scenes in lieu of traditional renditions.
For me, working in glass is both a privilege and pleasure. With such a rich history, there is already so much that has been discovered and produced, but yet, there is still so much left to learn. Glass is both a material and a puzzle experimentation, with failure being all part of the extensive process it takes in order to get the piece the way you envisioned it, making its final completion all that much more satisfying.
