Sooner or later we all lose our innocence. Usually, it takes us by surprise and leaves us speechless. We continue to learn lessons throughout our lives.
This is lost innocence, found knowledge, and the gift of overcoming challenges.
It is also a bird and a child with a feather floating over her mouth;
It is what you perceive; what the child felt as she captivated my attention and the feelings in me making it.
It is the large glistening glass of water which glowed between the little girl and me while we were both watched the bird.
Art, Glass & Life
I'm a sculptor working in glass. I look at life metaphorically. This led to writing poetry and an exploration of its possibilities in glass. Poetry allows the inclusion of small bits and pieces of life, the way glass allows the fusion of small bits of color. Together they've become a powerful part of my life that I'm happy to share with you here.
