I have to say...

I have to say that I am not used to long discussions about my work. My goal is for my work to do the talking for me.

First of all, I have to admit that I love glass, that unique substance that is capable of being both content and form at the same time. Glass is my friend and sometimes also my merciless adversary, punishing even my slightest mistakes.

Of course, when I am doing creative work, I try to apply my experience in the field of glass cutting. The danger is that the "glass cutter" in me might win out over the "creative artist". That would change my work from art into mere routine, so I try to pay careful attention to both aspects. It is up to you to decide whether I am succeeding.
