Stained Glass

I took a class on stained glass in high school, and I've been fascinated with it as an artistic medium ever since. This gallery contains two works with a similar theme: The first is a piece on flowers that blends organic into linear design elements, and the second is a piece on genetics uses a similar gradient from microscopy-based to digital based techniques for representing DNA.

Sewing

I'm an avid sewist, and these days I make much of my clothing myself. In addition to garment sewing I do some quilting. The quilt below is one that took me eight years to finish. The design is based on an image of a Intel microprocessor chip that I saw in a Technology Review photo essay in December 2008. I loved the image and got obsessed with the idea of translating it into fabric. The overly complicated design I drafted ended up being a lot of work! I put it away and picked it up again many times over the years, finally finishing the quilt November 2016. Thanks to Robert Streiffer for taking the photos.
