I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I love working with glass. Glass is My Passion. Many years ago this 'passion' started out with stained glass, which turned into glass fusing, which led to glassblowing and lampworking. The best part was I could use blown...

So. I wasn't planning on writing a blog post about making these shoes so I didn't take before pictures, but I'm sure you can use your imagination. It wasn't rocket science. :)

Who am I?….and Who Brought Me Here? A favorite saying of my fathers when he does something like walk upstairs then promptly forgets what he had come up for. Admit it. You've done it too. In the Art World, we as artists often struggle to find our voice and the question...
