Whenever possible, previously disposed glass is used.  Living in Florida, sea glass is picked up along the gulf coast beaches and used.   Sea glass in a piece is not always desired as it is noticeably different amongst other glass, due to its wear created over time by rolling waves.  However, for those that love a bit of stark contrast in art, this is highly desired.  It is beautiful for its differences from the glass around it.

Another feature found on the beautiful Florida beaches are shark teeth and shells that are wonderful in all sorts of pieces like the Hanging Reflections.  Mixing glass with a material provided from the sea come together to show what can be done when we take a step back and appreciate the resources we have while still preserving our planet.

Glass is also found and reused from trash.  Ten metric tons of glass is thrown away every year.  I take what I can and instead use it to create this art.  When you choose to bring home a piece, you are cleaning up a landfill and our oceans.

While not all glass used can be made from upcycled material, it is a core foundation of what brought me to this artform.  I hope that you can take as much pride as I do in knowing that the world is just a bit brighter and cleaner with this art in the world.
