“Glass can not be shaped with use of the hands, but rather manipulated with the use of an idea, this is what attracts me more than anything. Both form and function play a role in making a non-functional material into functional wares. The feeling of helplessness toward a medium impels me to find away of being creative with the ability of bringing an idea to life. Working with the elements, fire and earth, help me see the element which is me. The fragility as well as the strength of glass relates to the human being, as we are sensitive material.” ~K.S.
