This is a picture on a post card that I used in the late 80's for promotional purposes. The tallest piece is 14 inches. Nearly all of the pictures of my work are on 35mm slides, so they will have to be converted to digital before they can be posted.
The style of the decoration is called diatreta after ancient Roman glass. In this style, the decorative elements are positioned away from the body of the piece on short struts. The Roman pieces were carved from a single piece of glass, whereas mine are cast in one piece using the cire perdue or lost wax technique.
There is so much time and effort put in to each of my pieces that they become very dear to me and I don't like to sell them. Also, I have been out of the market for over ten years and now I just do glass as a hobby.
