“The greatest inspiration for me is the universe that is fulfilling my life’s credo of being the energy of the big bang, which has neither beginning nor ending. In my work I’m following minimalistic legacy and I am searching for the ideal and pure form. My aim is to contribute to the preservation of the old tradition of hand-blown glass together with developing and perfecting it.”
