Artist Statement

My interest lies in creation and design that goes beyond functional glass – to express balance and harmony in natural forms and tactile surfaces.

The careful study of colors is used to define the tissue and the fabric of the background, design used to expose the soul of slender and organic shapes. The textural and tactile qualities of the cold work heighten the sculptural effect of each piece.

The viewer is free to interpret and derive the inspiration that he or she feels, focusing on the different and, may be contradictory, features of these works. Fluidity, sparkle and transparency of glass give endless possibilities of development. These glassworks have three facets: form, light, material.
