With respect for good craftsmanship, my work explores the intrinsic merits of glass such as optics, texture and tactility. By working with the specific qualities of glass as a material and with reference to the Scandinavian tradition of decorative design, I create objects in glass such as vases and bowls where colors, pattern, texture and form in combination with clear crystal makes the objects appear both organic and yet defined in form.
