Introduction to "On Collaborations With My Daughter"

After graduation from college, my daughter moved to the west coast where she continued to pursue her interest in photography and book arts. I began to engage the idea of making glass books as an extension of the glass sculpture that I create, so when she returned to the East a few years ago, I asked her if she might be interested in working together to make some glass books. Happily, she said, "Yes", and we have created a series of collaborative pieces that combine my expertise in working with glass and form and her insights in creating with photo images and poetry. Through this work we have not only created our unique sculpture but have grown to know each other as creative peers.
