I am interested in taking the ancient art of enameling and using it in a more contemporary context. My work focuses on process and layers. By etching vitreous enamel that has been fused to a form, I am then able to draw onto it, allowing me to fuse images into the glass. I often refer to botanical drawings and Japanese Edo period woodblocks prints for my subject matter.
