"The perishable from the imperishable life find its way into her glass; Pearls referring to the sublime, to the eternal."
"For me glass inspires, seduces, challenges and teaches.
What fascinates me most is the duality of glass. Glass can be used in unlimited ways to fashion and manufacture objects while still maintaining a very fragile nature.
"I love the beautiful, the strong, the pure - the power and strength of life.
- It is the loss of these qualities in human life and nature which captures me;
This what I try to express in my work; with glass - and with wood;
preferably wood which has drifted for a while in the water or the sea.
My work is about new growth; slowly from death to new life - of transience to permanence.
The eternal ebb and flow of the rhythm of the sea is my second inspiration."
“Nature”, the essence of all life on this earth, is to me an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the creation of glass objects. "
