I carve an image into glass with a sandblaster and then use paint to bring out the image and give it some texture and depth. I feel as though I've just begun to realize the potential and have a ton of ideas and directions to explore. I strive to balance bold and stark imagery with delicate details.




Lone Crow Studio, 563 Buck Hill Road, Trumansburg, NY 14886


From Rt. 79 turn onto Buck Hill Road S. and drive about 3 miles. It is not a great road. You will come to a fork in the road where Chapman Road splits off to the right. People tend to take the right but you should keep going straight. Be careful here though as traffic coming down Chapman road also does not stop. There is a clump of evergreens on your left that mostly hides my house and studio.


I have always loved glass. When I was in high school I was lucky enough to visit the glass works in Venice and decided I must do something with glass. Instead, however, I joined the Navy so I could afford college and got my degree in Aeronautical Engineering as I have also always loved planes. As it turned out I didn't work on glass or planes, instead basically ending up at a dead-end job, welding science equipment together for Cornell until I was ultimately laid-off. By then I was in my mid 40's and decided two things: I would do something I care about, and that I would work for myself. So now I find myself carving pictures into glass and attempting to eke out some sort of living at it. Part of any artistic endeavor is to make something that will outlast the life of its creator. My hope is to leave some small bit of me behind to make some little part of the world a prettier place, long after my bones are rotted and gone.
