Statement:

When blowing glass one might find it difficult to shape the glass exactly as one envisions it. Letting go of oneself; blowing air into hot glass allows the glass to take on a new shape of its own. An alluring shape beyond one’s expectations. A product of the combination of air and heat, a new form begins to emerge. A form that mirrors our own world in a refreshing way. The light reflected on its surface creates a world beyond all belief. A world beyond my expectations.
