Artist statement:

Playing With Fire:


My lampworking designs emerge from a fusion of fine silvers

 bicarbonates and texture

to

create a unique symbiosis.

 

  My work is often described as

Upscale Rustic

Primitive

Boho Chic

and

Wildly Whimsical.

Rustic Raku Glass by Leese

 

 A crusted layer over shining glass, hints of color like a gem crusted over by the salt of the sea.

 

 

 

Earthy matte texture , shining flecks of silver, the variety of shapes... Silvered river stones tumbled smooth in the eddies.

 

 

While the polished beads in this set are lovely, they are outshone by the textured beads that combine grit with gloss, a slick sheen over the pitted surface like that of ancient glass buffeted by desert sands.
