20 years ago, I made a piece called “Green Devil, With a Fork, in a Sewage Pipe”. A great piece although it weighed 50 lbs. On a collector’s bus trip to DC, a couple purchased it and asked, if I could bring it up to their home, since I would be in NYC at the Armory show. The day came and the collector has asked us to dinner at their home.

As we left, I suggested we take a cab. The collector replied, “Oh no…It’s raining and there will be very few cabs out, let’s just take the bus. The bus stop was on Central Park. I then drag this massively heavy sculpture for blocks to get to central park. I kept insisting on taking a cab but the collector ensured me that it we were almost there. This began my longest journey. Now, 20 years later we are still dear friends. Its the biggest surprise for beginning artists, that the imagined separation between artist and collector dissolves in many cases and you become great friends with them for life. It’s one of the best parts of being in the glass world.
