"I draw from traditional Venetian cane techniques in a lot of my work, exploring and creating complex patterns and optical effects in glass. I am interested in ideas that appear in astrophysics and quantum mechanics and my work addresses the ideas of spatial and temporal relativity, and our perceptions of spacetime."
