The deeper I dive into the art of glass, the more I’m fascinated with the material’s beauty. Glass is solid but fragile, dense but fluid. It hovers between the concrete world, and the world of light. Much like a living organism, it contains contradictions, yet maintains harmony and balance. I love to work glass and I love the way it works me.  

Glass is my creative partner. I consider myself an artist, but also an explorer. Although my process is sparked by an idea, it is the anticipation of a discovery that  really drives me. I want glass to show me the way. And the more it does, the more I find that the final piece underlines the mysterious beauty of life.
