'Caged Currents'

The underwater holds secrets
more numerous than
wreckage of centuries
old sailing vessels and the
myriad of life forms. 
The hundreds of bits of glass
under the ‘cage’ represent
those secrets to me.

I create small works of glass
art
in bead form, drawing inspiration from the light
in a cloud streaked sky,
the striations of color in a
mountain range, and the
shapes of things left in my
garden.
I am most satisfied when
someone looks into one of
my beads and say
s they can
imagine what it would feel
like to be on the inside.
