Statement

The process - it characterizes me, my inside. I resist stagnation, looking for new territories, new approaches and connections in glassmaking. I work with glass as if I were conducting an interview, but without the niceness and courteous phrases. That is how the interactive artworks come into being, works which stimulate the emotions and incite interest without pandering to the audience. I perceive glass as a material that serves artists. Nothing more, nothing less. It is the medium through which I tell my stories.
