Medford Higher Education Center, Medford, OR 2008
"It Begins Within the Circle" Vibrant color and light move dramatically through two glass panels installed near the lobby and third floor study area of Rogue Community College and Southern Oregon University's Higher Education Center. In a technique of sandcarving and painting on glass these images reach for the macrocosm of our universe yet bring intimate elements from nature. Corresponding movement and the texture of water is echoed in the panels of cast glass. These pieces are about being connected, learning, seeing with a curiosity and passion. They are about movement, change and growth -- things necessary for a student to recognize as they move through the educational process.
