My glasswork plays with opposites; mass destruction vs construction, danger vs beauty, sharp vs soft, nature vs manmade.  While the broken shards of glass often conjure up thoughts of pain, the manipulation of the medium creates a desire to touch and play.  The glass guides your eyes through and around each piece as the light bounces and reflects between them.  I use readily accessible recycled objects, brake them down and reconstruct them into their new life while hinting to the essence of their history.  I enjoy the playfulness and commonality of recycled objects.  The use of recycled materials also speaks to the dual identities often incorporated into the souls and personalities of those with multi ethnic backgrounds and upbringing.  You are never just one thing, you are many, and it is the combinations, differences, and new creations that make you unique, and who you are.
