Lindsay has been working with glass for 11 years and considers herself "an advanced beginner" She continues to grow and change with the material and doesn't limit herself to one method of using glass as a means for sculptural expression.  


"Glass will always challenge me as long as I'm constantly looking for new inspiration! The gap from what I see in my mind for a piece and how that translates through my hands makes for a beautiful and trying relationship with glass, the dance partner I can't touch!"
