Welcome

As a studio artist fulltime since 1972, I have been challenged by the goal of advancing the floral paperweight tradition. By engaging the flameworking process, I have invented ways to express the seen and unseen beauty of nature. This website shares my glass, writings and artistic journey. 

Examples of my work are found in more than 70 international museum collections and currently command prices ranging from $1,000 for early examples from the 1970's and $6,500 and up for current work.
