Welcome to Kiln-formed glass art

About Me

My Background

 I am a glass artist, fashion designer and writer, as well as a professor at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I specialize in kiln-formed glass and hold regular classes and workshops for aspiring glass artists.     

My Shows

I combine my love of fashion and glass into a unique form of wearable glass including corsets, bandeaus, and swimwear which have appeared on catwalks at the:  

  • Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC 
  •  Centre Des Sciences de Montreal, Canada  
  • The Glass Art Society’s Conference shows in Corning, NY and Toledo, OH  
  • Sinaca Studio in Fort Worth, TX  
  • WMODA in Dania Beach, FL   

My Inspiration

I explore theories of fashion and glass in relation to the consumer culture by focusing on women, gender, image and memory. One of the challenges I faced with creating wearable glass was developing a technique that followed the form of the female body.
