My sculpture is about the notion of urban storytelling. We are witnessing a technological evolution, rapidly forming all around us. For my generation, with the excitement and curiosity of this technical progression, comes a sense of nostalgia.
I use glass to represent defunct or 'extinct' objects in combination with objects familiar to the current popular culture. The glass components become artifacts, preserved to tell a story for future generations on what life was all about "way back when". My works are a bit humorous and makes you think a little, about your life, past history, and the stories we'll be telling our grandchildren.
