“I have always been attracted to the beauty of glass. So I decided to use some of the shapes of my favorite glass designers, Lino Tagliapietra, and Dante Marioni as well as others whose work I saw at our Glass Center in Pittsburgh. I used their shapes and created elements in felt. that I could use as though they were what these glass blowers would use to decorate their work and add them to my work. I loved the elegance of their shapes. I hoped to capture their beauty in my forms. I believe in creating as much beauty in my work as I can. I think the world needs this.”
