“My inspiration is from mother nature, and ancient teachings about secret geometry, esoteric, epics of creation. I am always fascinated by the translucency, visual effects and optical illusions of glass. When I am creating it feels like being plugged in to another dimension here energy and sounds are appearing in front of me creating indescribable shapes, sounds and songs. Thus shapes became a glass body and sounds and songs are coded in the service texture. I feel that glass as a material has a great memory. My pieces are containers with energy and I am just an extension cord, serving the force of creativity.”
