Personal Statement


“In my glass sculpture I work with the simple closed space together with a limited amount of basic geometric shapes. With different cuts into the material I address the clear shape and form individual statements.”


“I prefer not to follow the path of creating segmented volumes. Glass specifically, or the glass, as the specific material, enables me infinite statements in one shape – for example, the hemisphere. My natural application of glass and its transparent qualities does not close the internal space but only limits it and thus, it makes possible for me to express many ideas and feelings in a certain shape. I work with the unique feature of this medium and address a simple shape through various entries to closed spaces – With the optical features of glass I develop the internal architecture and by a sensitive and tentative interference I brand in my individual approach and originality to this marvellous material.”
