Artist's Statement:
“For me working with hot glass is a privilege, I enjoy the quick decision making process and the fluid temperament full material. I take my inspiration from the play of light, texture and movement in nature. Forms bend and twist organically. The objects do not necessarily represent a descriptive picture of nature, but through the elastic, tactile abstraction it represents. The captured movement symbolises an energy which happens when working with molten glass.- “I want my objects to communicate with my audience.”
