StatementFor many years, I’ve sought to identify qualities that are unique to jewelry as a medium. One I’ve focused on is that jewelry is seen in motion. In my Lumina Series Brooches I’ve exploited this movement in such a manner that the brooches appear to dramatically shift color intensity or actually change color when viewed at different angles. At times they appear almost like internally lit neon tubes, saturated with color and full of light.
My Lumina Brooches are in part inspired by the effect of sunlight that is reflected by the moon and at times, diffused by cloud cover or fog.
Glass has a huge expressive range in terms of form, surface,color and texture. It can be as transparent as water or opaque as stone. It can be thousands of colors and any form in the world. I have found it fascinating to explore the possibilities.
