I am experimenting with new methods to exploit the remarkable qualities of glass. Using casting, fusing, slumping, sandblasting, staining and painting to achieve my own artistic expression. During last 20 years I developed technology called Vitrucell – a process similar to float glass-making. I am using a polygonal sub-structure to create a luminous interplay of light, color and form.
