Her glass art is created using the lost wax method of glass casting. With the many variants involved in this process, and the hand finishing, each glass piece ends up being individual, with its own distinctive qualities. She enjoys the challenges of the casting process, and aims within her work to create pieces which accentuate the hand-made characteristics, and tactile quality of each piece of glass.
