Although I am currently not making fountains, I am offering these
pictures to you as examples of some of my past work and potentially
some of my future explorations as well.

Most of these water sculptures are made up of numerous separate
pieces of glass stacked on top of each other, primarily fused
dichroic or with an iridized coating. The shapes are formed by
draping the glass over various ceramic and steel molds in the kiln.
Due to the fact that larger pieces of glass are extremely sensitive
to cracking from thermal shock, they must be heated and cooled
extremely slowly, often spending over 24 hours in a digital,
temperature-controlled kiln.

All the fountains are lit underwater and reveal ever-changing,
shimmering colors when viewed with different light.
