Glass challenges me. It behaves differently from other materials. In its “invisibility” it defies the normal form-related criteria. What appears as a drawing is completely different in its glassy materialization. I wrestle with this fragilely stubborn, ringing, clinking thing.
Glass is found both as a delicately-woven cocoon and in completely solid form.
Glass is soft and hard.
Glass is hot and cold.
Glass is hollow and full.
Glass is heavy and light.
Glass – as I shape it – is pure hand (and mouth) work and is thus an ideal companion for my other products, such as cutlery or china.
