Want to purchase one of my clocks?
For the first time, ArtPrize is partnering with an auction site to help MAKE THAT HAPPEN!
Only five clocks are set to be auctioned during ArtPrize.
I will release info about the remaining clocks after ArtPrize.
Lost Time Gained is a collection of 17 clocks that represent the 17 months Michigan was under emergency order for the COVID-19 pandemic. We have all lost time during the pandemic. Time from friends, family, and our community. For so many, time has been cut off altogether through tragic deaths that occurred too soon in many lives. For many, the time we gained with our housemates in lockdown would not have happened if it weren’t for the pandemic. My clocks do not have numbers or a specific way to tell the exact time, this is intentional. I encourage you to get lost in the time you have with the people in your life right here, right now, every day.
I began working with fused glass when I was fourteen. Through learning the technical process, I have been able to experiment with the medium, making a variety of products.
A large portion of my work revolves around the concept of functional beauty. I believe that every day people go through life using many products, and I work to make sure those products are both usable and visually attractive.

About Fused Glass
Fused Glass is the process of melting glass together in a glass kiln at 1450*F. Fusing can also include a technique called slumping (1265*F) which entails “softening” the glass over treated ceramic or stainless steel molds.
