I created Mapleseed Crafts to explore the infinite and beautiful universe of flameworked glass creations. I have always been one to create shiny and mesmerizing objects from raw materials and fire, and a fortuitous series of classes at The Crucible allowed me to get started in the magic of glass. Now, in my Oakland home studio, I am able to bring these creations to life using borosilicate glass, a bench torch, and an annealing kiln. All of my work is an attempt to draw out the sense of wonder and whimsy of what I see, whether it is light and playful, loving and sensuous, or creepy and adorable.
I would be honored if you followed my adventures on Instagram or Facebook, and much of my work is currently available on Etsy. I am also to be found at various craft events in the Bay Area.
