STATEMENT

 

My work is about using the Venetian techniques in a Scandinavian way rather than in a Venetian way. It is also about seeing the technique as a tool to clarify and refine my personal expression. I have searched for simple details in glass which, when used in the right context, adds a refinement to the end result. I have explored methods to break away from the traditional patterns to discover a new and more organic expression and style.
