“Nature has always fascinated and inspired me, as I find harmony within such intricate systems. My artwork explores the fragile and forceful elements of nature. Since we are from the earth, not above it, I have always believed the answers to our questions are right here in front of us. I am currently creating large scale sculptures about the effects of Climate Change on the environment. These sculptures represented fire, air, earth and water.

Fire & Ice is an exhibition of WildFire and Thaw, two outdoor sculptures which can be seen through Oct. 31 at Chesterwood historic home and studio of Daniel Chester French. I have a background in bronze and glass casting. I sculpt the work, make molds, then cast a version in wax. Using the lost wax process, I then transform the work into glass or bronze.

Having a strong background in bronze casting has enabled me to take risks with glass casting, pushing limits to what the glass is able to do. I have been finding surprisingly great results.

Bronze makes something that in nature is decaying and ephemeral, more permanent. Glass allows me to use light and color to breathe life into the sculpture, deepening the significance of the piece. I hope my sculptures raise awareness and inspire change, so we can come together to nourish and protect our environment.”
