To walk on the “edge” was always my motto in life.  To always walk the line where one art direction ends but a new one is yet to begin; where the possibilities of matter are brought to their limit and where ideas are brought to the absurd – that is where I practice my art. Any material reveals its hidden and surprising qualities only in extreme situations. The transformation of glass from its hot, raw and liquid state into stiff, cold and fragile substance symbolizes, in my eyes, the full cycle of life. In my work, I look for ways to intertwine traditional glass blowing with contemporary art.
