My work is distinguished by an original combination of blown and slumped glass. A clear, smooth piece of blown glass represents, for me, simply a starting point of raw material. By kiln casting that piece in a plaster old, I extract buried secrets from its flesh, until a story appears where earlier, there was only transparency. The unpredictable results of this superimposition of techniques creates the impression that the object itself upon disclosing it own complexity, determined its final form. The intimacy of the piece is thus revealed.
