I create dynamic glass, experiments, fuse it with other substances, analyses and examines it – rationally, but with empathy. I work with it as if I were conducting an interview, but without the niceties and courteous phrases. That is how the interactive artworks come into being, works which stimulate the emotions and incite interest without pandering to the audience. I perceive glass as a material that serves artists. Nothing more, nothing less. It is the medium through which I tell my stories.
Each year I try to make some different objects than I have made before. I make an experiments to combine glass with chemistry – sodium acetate or blue vitriol, with materials as fiber glass, basalt or basalt fibers, grinding wheels, or I educe my own materials as kind of home made flubbers from glue and borax. Nothing is strange to me I search for different way in this supersaturated world. New materials give me new impulses, ideas, inspirations. In my creations you can find both design pieces and conceptual artworks – original, identifiable, my own.
I resist stagnation, looking for new territories, new approaches and connections in glassmaking.
