Research Focus: I am focused on methods of navigation. The research is based on interpreting and exploring way-finding methodologies in relationship to personal growth and development. I create and conceive of context that are both universal and personal in nature.

Potential Student Project(s):

  • Exploration of two dimensional/three dimensional interfaces
  • Advanced material casting processes
  • Ideation and actualization methodologies

Attributes/skills/background sought in undergraduate:

  • Basic understanding of glass working skills including mold making, blowing, and cold working.
  • Punctual
  • Willing to see a project to completion

Mentoring Plan: Mixed-media work will be created with a primary focus in glass for upcoming shows that will involve several sculptures and a small installation. I anticipate meeting with the selected student to explain the project scope and specifics of the work required. Student will work 5 hours per week on the project including 1-on-1 interactions with me for about 1 hour per week. Initially, that hour will be relegated toward bringing the student’s technical proficiency to the level required for the current research goals. Later in the semester, this time will be utilized towards expanding the student’s own research goals.
