About Wunder Around

I think the stuff of everyday life can be special—from the glass you drink your morning juice in to the bowl that collects your junk mail. And that having a fabulous vase to put flowers in is a great excuse to bring some home, to surprise your coworker or say thank you to your mom.

I love making colorful, beautiful pieces of blown glass that help make your everyday feel special. I enjoy experimenting with color and shape in glass and make each piece in the studios of DC GlassWorks in Hyattsville, Maryland.

And when I’m not in the glass studio, I love to explore. The woods. City streets. Techniques in craft. Color. Texture. The everyday world around us. And I love making.

I’m delighted to share the best of my explorations here with you and hope you'll find something to make your everyday special.
