"Glass offers opportunities like no other material. It has everything: heat, cold, interior depth, the inner power of suggestion. For me the blowing room is the center of it all. It's like ladling lava out of a volcano and watching the glowing matter turn to ice. Knowing the exact moment at which to capture a shift of light or expression and wrest the secret from the glass is what it's all about."
