more numerous than

The hundreds of bits of glass
under the ‘cage’ represent
those secrets to me.

I create small works of glass
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
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.
