Glass forms that create an image reminiscent of light trapped within ice. His works take the form of homes that are filled with warmth, creating a feeling of nostalgic longing in the viewer. After the works are removed from their molds, the powdered gypsum that remains on the surface results in the glass transmitting a soft light.
