In the five plus years since I retired from IU, I used a good part of my newly found time to learn how to blow and fuse glass. I specialize in making a type of glass I refer to as Sugar and Ice glass. Crushed glass is kiln-heated barely enough to create sturdy glass bowls and art pieces while leaving enough texture to both reflect and refract light. Heating schedules vary based on size, whether I have included any solid glass, and the colors of the glass. These pieces sparkle when displayed in natural light, or under spot, pendant or chandelier lighting. These pieces evoke a sense of joy and happiness and usually astonish folks who see these unique sparkling gems. I cannot say no body else is doing glass work like this, but I have looked and have yet to find it.
