The techniques of the Venetian style of glass blowing and hot sculpting best describe my ideal style of glass working and fit as a historical reference towards my strongest influence. My work is an example of an extension into a modern day technical vocabulary that has moved towards a more sculptural way of working with glass. It has allowed me to incorporate blown glass with hot sculpted glass and various glass components to build elaborate glass sculptures. This allows me to work on a larger scale, as well as giving very specific attention to each individual component of a sculpture.
