at the invitation of the pilchuk glass school in the summer of 2005, and at two subsequent residencies in 2006 (r.i.t. and the museum of glass in tacoma), i became committed to a concept requiring the glass medium. in watching the movement of the gaffers, i realized the relatedness of textile processes to glass -- glass is flexible and can be fibrous when molten. by translating fiber bobbin winding, or rewinding, into glass we are able to produce and exploit aesthetic analogies between these two modes of production.
