Fused glass is a process of design, color selection, cutting, assembling and firing in a kiln. There are many challenges in that process. The type of glass, number of layers of glass and the firing schedule all work together to create a successful piece. I find "warm glass" an exciting medium to work with and have reached for the goal of the "perfect" object for 30 years. 

I have taught the art of stained and fused glass at studios in Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma. In addition, I held classes in my glass studio, Metro Stained Glass in Oklahoma City while hosting workshops with glass artists from across the United Stated and Canada. 

However in the last five years I have devoted my time to designing custom glass tiles for residential and commercial projects.
