Inspiration often strikes while performing the most ordinary activities. When we allow our minds to wander and escape the monotony of mundane tasks, we allow the beauty of perception to enrapture us. Such is the case behind my inspiration to create my, “For The Table” series.

One day while walking my dogs, I began to notice the interesting shapes and lines in the cracks of the street and sidewalk. I started taking my camera with me on walks and photographing the broken concrete which have become great inspiration for many of my kiln-forming projects. This process allows for spontaneity and the freedom to implement a variety of glass elements while creating a more organic abstraction. This form of creating is quickly becoming my favorite technique.
