"This is my second attempt at creating an octopus, but this one inhabits a hand-blow bell jar. I wanted to challenge myself by having the entire body outside of the jar, making each magnetic connection between the tentacles essential to supporting the piece."

Moments of Thaw
"I am in the midst of a new body of cyanotype skin work that is interested in breaking the solid barrier of glass forms. I was recently exposed to the power of magnets and the surreal qualities that they could give to my pieces. Small high-powered magnets make this kind of exploration possible. Many of my ideas for these works surround escaping containment. I have gathered glass bowls, bell jars and tanks and each one of these glass enclosures has a different natural form passing through it."
