I feel as if I am a explorer. With each piece I make I prepare for a journey,
I have a general idea where I want to go, but I never know where the path
will lead me.
Each piece I work on I set out in the hopes of discovering something new
As any explorer my journeys are filed with ups and downs, disappointments
however with each piece I am sure to gain knowledge and insight which
is the excitement that
brings me to my studio every day.

time he studied glassblowing with David Levi
